> Well, I tried the Gabitril for a few more days at 12mg just to see (heck, maybe something would have clicked and it would have gotten better). It just got worse so yesterday, I only took 8mg and today I took none. Got the AE switched to Trileptal and will start that tomorrow night. I am in the middle of quitting caffeine so it might get weird differentiating Trileptal side-effects with caffeine withdrawal. I think now is a good time to start keeping a medication journal.

Good luck with the Trileptal. It made me pretty nauseous though. It didn't seem to dull my thinking however and seemed to have an antidepressant effect. I am REAL touchy with anything that causes nausea. You might do fine with it, though.

> You mention low dose of Prozac, but the doc said he wants me on 60mg minimum for OCD (says higher doses needed for OCD than for depression). This seems really high to me, since I've only taken 20 mg before (when I talked to him the first time, I made a mistake and said I had taken 40 mg before). I guess if it helps with the obsessed thinking, I can put up with no sex life...well, maybe for a while. Do you know if Adderal (as it is a dopaminergic) will help with Prozac induced anorgasmia?

Wow! 60mg! I know that folks with OCD need a pretty high dose. I just wonder if that much would be too destabilizing (worsen cycling). FWIW, I found that Zoloft gave me the least trouble with reduced libido, anorgasmia, etc. It blocks the dopamine transporter a lot more than the other SSRi's. But of course YMMV. Have you ever tried Neurontin for ruminations/OCD?? It helps some people. Maybe you can take Trileptal+Neurontin and not need an SSRI for the OCD? Just a thought.
