Re: OCD & Dopamine Enhancers:

> How do these "dopamine enhancers" affect OCD? I've been reading through messages ... I think it was Andrew highly recommending, amilsulpride & miraprex for depression/anxiety combos; promoting their energizing effect. I have OCD & Social Anxiety. I recently tried Manerix which I really liked because of it's energizing, anti-depressant action; it worked well for my anxiety too - but it seemed to stimulated my OCD. Why can't I find a drug that seems to target both of these - the same/interacting brain "chemicals" must be causing the combined emotional illnesses. (How naive of me ... most people who write to this chat group have the same problem - drug therapy for mental/emotional illness seems to be in early stages.) Anyway my friends ... any advice??

Try doing a medline search under "dopamine" and "OCD". Certain dopamine receptor abnormalities are implicated in OCD. Dopamine receptor antagonists have been used to treat OCD. With this in mind, it makes sense that Manerex, with its dopamine activity, would increase your OCD?
