Clomipramine and penacillin
We met our consultant yesterday and had a good chat about the situation. They explained why it had taken a while to get the green light to start clomipramine: it was a case of getting answers to all the relevant questions. So he began taking 25mg last night working up to 75mg over a period of three weeks. He was already taking amitriptyline for it's pain reducing benefits but that has to be reduced as it's in the same family as clomipramine. We were also advised to start the antibiotics because this cough is not getting any better. He is amazing at taking tablets! Usually they just go down in one gulp!
