Antidepressants may increase risk of suicidal thinking and behavior (suicidality) in children, adolescents, and young adults (18–24 years of age) with major depressive disorder and other psychiatric disorders; balance this risk with clinical need.d e Clomipramine is not approved for use in pediatric patients except patients with obsessive-compulsive disorder.1 (See Pediatric Use under Cautions.)
In pooled data analyses, risk of suicidality was not increased in adults >24 years of age and apparently was reduced in adults ≥65 years of age with antidepressant therapy compared with placebo.d e
Depression and certain other psychiatric disorders are themselves associated with an increased risk of suicide.d e f
Appropriately monitor and closely observe all patients who are started on clomipramine therapy for clinical worsening, suicidality, or unusual changes in behavior; involve family members and/or caregivers in this process.d e f (See Worsening of Depression and Suicidality Risk under Cautions.)

Cautions for Clomipramine Hydrochloride
Concurrent or recent (i.e., within 2 weeks) therapy with an MAO inhibitor.1 (See Specific Drugs under Interactions.)
During the acute recovery phase following MI.1
Known hypersensitivity to clomipramine or other TCAs.1
Risk of seizure; use with caution in patients with a history of seizures or other predisposing factors (e.g., brain damage of various etiology, alcoholism, concurrent use of other drugs that lower the seizure threshold).1

Worsening of Depression and Suicidality Risk
Possible worsening of depression and/or emergence of suicidal ideation and behavior (suicidality) or unusual changes in behavior in both adult and pediatric patients, whether or not they are taking antidepressants; may persist until clinically important remission occurs.d e f g However, suicide is a known risk of depression and certain other psychiatric disorders, and these disorders themselves are the strongest predictors of suicide.d e f
Appropriately monitor and closely observe patients receiving clomipramine for any reason, particularly during initiation of therapy (i.e., the first few months) and during periods of dosage adjustments.d e f (See Boxed Warning and also see Pediatric Use under Cautions.)
Anxiety, agitation, panic attacks, insomnia, irritability, hostility, aggressiveness, impulsivity, akathisia, hypomania, and/or mania may be precursors to emerging suicidality.e f Consider changing or discontinuing therapy in patients whose depression is persistently worse or in those with emerging suicidality or symptoms that might be precursors to worsening depression or suicidality, particularly if severe, abrupt in onset, or not part of patient’s presenting symptoms.d e f (See General under Dosage and Administration and also see Withdrawal Reactions under Cautions.)
Prescribe in smallest quantity consistent with good patient management to reduce risk of overdosage.1 e
Observe these precautions for patients with psychiatric (e.g., major depressive disorder, OCD) or nonpsychiatric disorders.e
May unmask bipolar disorder.e (See Activation of Mania or Hypomania under Cautions.) Clomipramine is not approved for use in treating bipolar depression.1
Screen for risk of bipolar disorder by obtaining detailed psychiatric history (e.g., family history of suicide, bipolar disorder, depression) prior to initiating therapy.e

May precipitate an acute psychotic episode in patients with unrecognized schizophrenia.1 3 155 156 295
Activation of Mania or Hypomania
Risk of activation of mania or hypomania in patients with affective disorder.1 3 155 156 295 (See Bipolar Disorder under Cautions.)
Use with caution in patients for whom excess anticholinergic activity could be harmful (e.g., history of urinary retention, increased intraocular pressure, angle-closure glaucoma).1
More than 30 cases of hyperthermia reported,1 most cases occurring in patients receiving clomipramine in combination with other drugs (e.g., antipsychotic agents).1 157 199 When clomipramine and an antipsychotic agent were used concomitantly, the cases sometimes were considered to be examples of neuroleptic malignant syndrome (NMS).1 157 199
Potentially clinically important elevations (e.g., >3 times ULN) in serum ALT1 65 and AST1 concentrations;1 severe hepatic injury and/or death rarely reported.1
Possible cross hepatotoxicity (e.g., elevated values on hepatic function tests, abdominal pain) involving different TCAs including clomipramine.207 (See Hepatic Impairment under Cautions.)
Bone marrow depression1 227 (e.g., leukopenia,1 agranulocytosis,1 3 162 164 165 166 thrombocytopenia,1 anemia,1 pancytopenia)1 3 163 rarely reported.1 227

Withdrawal reactions (e.g., dizziness, nausea, vomiting, headache, malaise, sleep disturbance, hyperthermia, sweating, irritability, seizures, worsening of psychiatric status) reported following abrupt discontinuance of therapy.1 2 78 148 301
To avoid withdrawal reactions, taper dosage gradually and monitor patients carefully.1 2 78 148 301
Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT)
Possible increased ECT risks; limit to patients for whom concomitant use is essential.1
Discontinue therapy for as long as is clinically feasible prior to surgery and advise the anesthetist of such action.1
Use with caution in hyperthyroid patients or patients receiving thyroid agents because of the possibility of cardiac toxicity.1 1
Adrenal Medulla Tumors
Use with caution in patients with tumors of the adrenal medulla, in whom hypertensive crises may be provoked.1
Possible withdrawal symptoms (e.g., jitteriness,1 71 152 158 tremor,1 71 153 154 seizures1 3 152 153 ) in neonates whose mothers received clomipramine throughout pregnancy;1 avoid use during late pregnancy whenever possible.153

Safety and efficacy for OCD not established in children <10 years of age.1
Potential risks associated with long-term use (e.g., effects on growth, development, or maturation) not systematically evaluated in children and adolescents.1
Adverse effects in children and adolescents >10 years of age generally similar to those in adults.1
FDA warns that a greater risk of suicidal thinking or behavior (suicidality) occurred during first few months of antidepressant treatment (4%) compared with placebo (2%) in children and adolescents with major depressive disorder, OCD, or other psychiatric disorders based on pooled analyses of 24 short-term placebo-controlled trials of 9 antidepressant drugs (SSRIs and others).e However, a more recent meta-analysis of 27 placebo-controlled trials of 9 antidepressants (SSRIs and others) in patients <19 years of age with major depressive disorder, OCD, or non-OCD anxiety disorders suggests that the benefits of antidepressant therapy in treating these conditions may outweigh the risks of suicidal behavior or suicidal ideation.g No suicides occurred in these pediatric trials.e g
Carefully consider these findings when assessing potential benefits and risks of clomipramine in a child or adolescent for any clinical use.d e f g (See Worsening of Depression and Suicidality Risk under Cautions.)
Insufficient experience in patients ≥65 years of age to determine whether geriatric patients respond differently than younger adults.1
In pooled data analyses, a reduced risk of suicidality was observed in adults ≥65 years of age with antidepressant therapy compared with placebo.d e (See Boxed Warning and also see Worsening of Depression and Suicidality Risk under Cautions.)
Possible increased sensitivity to anticholinergic (e.g., dry mouth, constipation, vision disturbance), cardiovascular, orthostatic hypotension, and sedative effects of TCAs.

Clomipramine Hydrochloride Pharmacokinetics
Well absorbed following oral administration,2 3 4 5 10 55 with peak plasma concentrations usually attained within 2–6 hours (mean: 4.7 hours).1 10 11 12 25 29
Oral bioavailability is about 50% because of extensive first-pass metabolism.1 2 25 55
Therapeutic response in OCD generally occurs within 2–6 weeks, with maximal effects after 3–4 months.33 66 99 103
Food does not appear to substantially affect bioavailability from capsules.1 29
In geriatric patients, plasma concentrations of clomipramine and its major active metabolite (desmethylclomipramine) are substantially higher than those in younger adults (18–40 years of age).1 41 60
In children <15 years of age, plasma concentration-dose ratios of clomipramine are substantially lower than those of adults.1 43
In smokers, steady-state plasma clomipramine concentrations are substantially lower than in nonsmokers;1 41 55 60 smoking appears to have less effect on plasma concentrations of desmethylclomipramine.60
Clomipramine and desmethylclomipramine widely distributed in body tissues, with moderate to high concentrations occurring in organs such as the lungs, adrenals, kidneys, heart, and brain.1 3 5 10 53
Crosses the blood-brain barrier; desmethylclomipramine concentration in CSF is about 2.6 times higher than in plasma.1
Crosses the placenta and distributes into milk.1 4 22 55 60 62 71
Plasma Protein Binding
Approximately 97–98%, principally to albumin and possibly to α1-acid glycoprotein (α1-AGP).1 2 4 29 55 56
Extensively metabolized to active metabolites1 2 3 4 5 19 20 55 61 72 73 by various CYP isoenzymes (e.g., CYP1A2,346 CYP2C,73 CYP2D6,72 73 CYP3A4).c
Exhibits nonlinear pharmacokinetics at dosages >150 mg daily.1 8 Metabolism of clomipramine and desmethylclomipramine may be capacity limited (saturable).1 8 55
Clomipramine and metabolites excreted in urine and in feces (via biliary elimination).1 4 5 11 21 29 55 73
Elimination half-lives of clomipramine and desmethylclomipramine are approximately 32 hours (range: 19–37 hours) and 69 hours (range: 54–77 hours), respectively, after a 150-mg oral dose.1 2
Elimination half-lives may be considerably prolonged at dosages near upper limit of recommended dosage range (i.e., 200–250 mg daily).1 8
Effects of renal and hepatic impairment on the disposition of clomipramine have not been fully elucidated.1 60
Hemodialysis, peritoneal dialysis, forced diuresis, and/or exchange transfusion are unlikely to remove clomipramine and desmethylclomipramine substantially because of the drug’s rapid distribution into body tissues.1
Tightly closed container at ≤30°C.1 Protect from moisture.1
Mechanism of action in the management of OCD unknown but may involve inhibition of reuptake of serotonin.1 2 3 213 214 220
Desmethylclomipramine inhibits norepinephrine reuptake;2 3 4 48 212 213 214 220 221 235 therefore, clomipramine also shares pharmacologic profile of other tricyclic antidepressants.235 238
Exhibits marked anticholinergic activity, which may account for 3 4 288 289 sedation,1 65 238 242 adverse cardiovascular effects,1 2 193 222 235 339 and reduced seizure threshold (particularly at relatively high dosages).1 210
Advice to Patients
Risk of suicidality; importance of patients, family, and caregivers being alert to and immediately reporting emergence of suicidality, worsening depression, or unusual changes in behavior, especially during the first few months of therapy or during periods of dosage adjustment.d e f FDA recommends providing written patient information (medication guide) explaining risks of suicidality each time the drug is dispensed.d e f
Importance of informing patients about the risk of seizures associated with the drug.1
Importance of discussing with patients the risk of serious injury to themselves or others resulting from sudden loss of consciousness (e.g., because of seizures) while engaged in certain complex and hazardous activities (e.g., operation of complex machinery, driving a motor vehicle, swimming, climbing).1
Importance of cautioning patients about the use of alcohol, barbiturates, or other CNS depressants (see Interactions).1 243
Importance of informing male patients about the relatively high incidence of sexual dysfunction associated with the drug.1 3 180
Importance of women informing their clinician if they are or plan to become pregnant or plan to breast-feed.1
Importance of informing clinicians of existing or contemplated concomitant therapy, including prescription and OTC drugs, as well as any concomitant illnesses.1
Importance of informing patients of other important precautionary information.1 (See Cautions.)
