An attempt was made to measure the effects of depressive illness and of clomipramine Anafranil therapy in doses of 30 mg and 75 mg daily on sexual appetite and performance. A special questionnaire was devised to gather information on sexual habits before illness, during illness and following treatment. It proved difficult to differentiate between the beneficial effects of recovery from depression and the possible adverse drug effects on sexual activity. Two patients dropped out of the study because of supposed sexual side-effects--a male with ejaculatory difficulties and a female with orgasmic impotence. Fifty-four patients completed the sexual questionnaire and a four-week course of clomipramine. There were nineteen males and thirty-five females. Coital rate was decreased and depression interfered with performance and satisfaction.

In a meta-analysis of various trials involving fluoxetine Prozac , fluvoxamine Luvox , and sertraline Zoloft to test their relative efficacies in treating OCD, clomipramine was found to be the most effective.
