Brief Answer:
try these under clinician supervision

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Welcome to Healthcare magic.
Clomipramine is a safe drug and can be taken for years together.
You can try other alternative SSRI which may be cheaper in your country namely sertraline, fluoxetine.
Amitryptiline is a different class drug but can be a good replacement.
I hope the advise will be helpful for you.
