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.

I am a 57 year old female who has been experiencing extreme episodes of sweating lasting sometimes for a couple of hours. Hair dripping. Feel tired most of the time. Dr. just took me off Zoloft thinking that may be causing the extreme sweating. I had been on 100mg of Zoloft for about 13 years. I also take Wellbutrin XL 300. My A1C was 6.1. Doctor doesn't seemed concerned with A1C. I just don't know what can be causing such extreme sweating. Any ideas? Thanks, Marilyn

Or is it really bad the side effect if you take it for long time?

She had been prescribed...100 mg/zoloft, 25 mg/elavil, and 150 mg/twice daily/Bupropion. Something just doesnt seem right to me with all that. There are other issues that I have with her medication right now, but hey...Im no DR.

Dear sir or madam, I have had a flakey, soft, darkbrown stool for about two weeks now. It has a really strong smell and I have a lot of gas too. I tend to go to the toilet about 3 to 5 times a day, it is really getting too much! I am on 100 mg of sertraline since about 2 months now. Also, I have a strong smelling vaginal discharge and a strange itch with tiny little red spots on the top of my feet and my legs. Where does this all come from!? Thank you for your help
