> 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.

I was on the med. for 10 days only. But whoo ... my brain was working overtime! Perhaps I should have stayed on it longer.

I think Zyprexa is now used as an adjunctive medication to treat OCD. It sounds like adding it to Anafranil might help with the remaining symptoms you are describing. It's just a guess.

Good luck.
