> Hi again, I started back on Anafranil; 25mg first week, now up to 50mg last 4 days; and still taking 20 mg. of Celexa and 1 mg of Klonopin. It's odd though, it seems my OCD or anxiety is quite a bit worse. I remember someone telling me one time that it can get worse at first until the meds start kicking in. In fact, they said this might be a good sign that it would work or me. My Dr. said I could go off the Celexa after being on Anafranil 50mg two weeks but I'm afraid to as I then won't know which is doing what. Has anyone experienced this, Anafranil making them feel worse at first, then possibly better later? Please respond, I'm feeling kinda hopeless!


i have a bad case of OCD myself. was taking anafranil for a long time. at first, it seemed to help me a lot, but as time wore on, it wasn't quite doin' the trick. as i upped the dosage, strangly, it got worse. then i switched to paxil, which did not help too much for the OCD, so again, i had to stop that. am now taking effexor, 37.5mg to start.
hopefully, this will help.
