Hi there .
Since u have answer to some questions such as name of illness...u need to understand what it really means and how its going to improve....its general consensus dat treatment options for this kind of illness is through pharmacological and non- pharmacological methods ( counselling or behavioural therapy)
The latter is very important for long term effects of any treatment. Pharmacologically speaking 25 mg of clomipramine is not an adequate dose at all....u need to see ur psychiatrist again and discuss regarding behavioural interventions.
Hope this helps u
Feel free to consult further. .
Take care
