Clomipramine Hydrochloride Capsules

Clomipramine HCl is a tricyclic antidepressant FDA approved for veterinary use in dogs for the treatment of separation anxiety. Clomipramine (Anafranil), FDA approved for human use, is also used in veterinary medicine to treat aggression and obsessive-compulsive disorders such as tail chasing. Clomipramine may also be useful in cats, but cats tend to be more sensitive to tricyclic antidepressant drugs.

Used in humans to treat anxiety and depression.  Action is by inhibition of serotonin uptake at presynaptic nerve terminals.  Beneficial effects may be caused primarily by blocking reuptake of serotonin.

The usual dose of clomipramine in dogs is 0.5-1.5mg per pound every 12-24 hours. Give this medication with food.

When adjusting doses, initiate therapy with low dose and increase gradually.  There may be a 2-4 week delay before beneficial effects are seen.  After a favorable response is achieved, the dose can be gradually lowered in some animals.  In cats, doses of 1.25-2.5 mg/cat every 24 hours have been administered for psychogenic alopecia.  Up to 5 mg/cat every 24 hours has been used for treatment of urine spraying.

Side effects of clomipramine may include drowsiness, dry mouth, rapid heart rate, loss of appetite, vomiting and diarrhea. Some patients may become aggressive.
