Clomipramine for Pediatric OCD?

We know that CBT and SSRI are considered first-line treatments for pediatric OCD management, but few patients are treatment-refractory and they do not respond to these first-line treatments.

Can we use Clomipramine in pediatric OCD and can we use this with SSRIs?

This is what Dr. Erica Greenberg will discuss in the following 5-minute video. This video is from her 1 hour-long presentation at our Obsessive-Compulsive & Related Disorders Update 2021:
