BuSpar sometimes is used to augment OCD treatment. Other than that, I second Elizabeth's post (btw, if you ever get contradictory info on stuff from us, take her word over mine. She knows more :)).

Remeron is very good for depression with anxiety. I know this firsthand. This probably is due to the combo of its effect on the H1 (histamine) receptor and the fact it's a strong 5HT2 antagonist, though as it usually goes with these things, no one is quite sure. The atypical antipsychotics (Risperdal, Zyprexia, Seroquel) all hit the 5HT2 receptor, and all (esp. the latter two) often are used as anxiolytics at low doses.

Serzone is said to be good for anxiety, though I'm a bit skeptical of this drug (as if that matters :) ). IME, Prozac worked wonders on my anxiety.

If you do switch from the Zoloft, I'd seriously give Remeron a look. It works very well on depression (faster than Prozac), is great on GAD, and probably works for OCD and panic (they're doing trials right now--so far all we have is lots of anecdotal evidence).

How are you doing, anyway?
