Active Ingredient

The active ingredient of this medicine is Clomipramine, which is a tricyclic antidepressant that acts by reducing the reuptake of norepinephrine and serotonin in the central nervous system, to enhance the effects of these neurotransmitters. It binds to alpha-adrenergic, histaminergic, and cholinergic receptors which are responsible for the many side effects seen with this agent. Clomipramine, the 3-chloride analog of imipramine, is a dibenzazepine-derivative tricyclic antidepressant (TCA). It does not affect mood or arousal but may cause sedation.


Clomipramine-composed medicine Anafranil is intended to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). It helps decrease persistent/unwanted thoughts, and it helps reduce the urge to perform repeated tasks like compulsions, hand-washing, counting, and checking that interfere with daily living.

It belongs to a class of medications called tricyclic antidepressants. It works by restoring the balance of certain natural substances (serotonin, among others) in the brain.

Action Mechanism

This antidepressant medication is thought to enhance the actions of norepinephrine and serotonin i.e. chemical neurotransmitters in the brain that nerves use to communicate with one another, by blocking their reuptake and prolonging their activity.
