> I have just had a reoccurrence of my OCD. I went on Anafranil which worked extremely well for me in the past. This time, it seemed to really exacerbate my symptoms. I was happy, happy ... but crazy, crazy. Couldn't turn off the brain. Everything invading and bothering me. So I came off. Now ... I still feel symptomatic, and very tired. My OCD is connected with my sleep. Rituals done at night. So I need a medication that has a sleepytime effect.
> Well faithful psychobabble audience ... any suggestions about what med. I can take.

The mood stabilizer Neurontin has been shown to help for some people as an adjunct with other anti-OCD meds. I read a warning somewhere which stated that withdrawal of Neurontin in patients with OCD tended to aggravate their OCD symptoms and recommended a slower withdrawal.
