Has anyone tried clomipramine? Desperate!

Iv been on clomipramine 10mg for 8 weeks now for obsessive thoughts and anxiety and have tolerated it pretty well up to now with little few side effects, however 3 weeks ago I noticed my anxiety coming back and I'm bad tempered and irritated, my doctor increased my dose to 25mg and last night I took one and woke up like I was on fire and felt sick I was terrified, was this dose too high? I don't know why iv suddenly gone down hill after I was ok when starting it.

It's so hard I tried before and just couldn't function without something to help I also suffer from obsessive thoughts that can be crippling at times they seem to be a bit better but not the anxiety.

I shake physically when iv got anxiety and feel really stressed, it's one of the symptoms I wish would go! Racing thoughts as well as catastrophizing everything, worrying il never get better. Iv had cbt 5 times and it's never really helped.

My anxiety started years ago but just kind of got worse over the years, i suffered a trauma very young( sexual) but iv had some treatment for that it's just generalised anxiety now and obsessive thinking.
