In reply to What med can I try for OCD? Running out of ideas.., posted by rainbowlight on May 19, 2002, at 19:43:00

RainbowLight,
Have you tried Remeron? It's rumored to be good for OCD. Of course, I'm taking it, so one has to wonder... Anyhow, I like Rem very much, even thought it's tough to get past the first week or so of zombie-dom. Higher doses, 45mg and up, kick in the NE and turn it into a completely different drug. European pdocs typically have their patients go up to 90mg, but you never see anyone in this country go past 30mg, and at that dosage it's a dud. The only drawback is weight gain, which can be excessive. I'm exercising way more than I have in a long time both to melt away the pudge, and also because I just can. Remeron has pretty much given me my life back, even though the f**cking bulldozers are putting the efficacy of these meds to the acid test.

Oh, and something very important - are you taking any kind of mood stabilizer? That seems to be the magic ticket for many of us here. Without the lithium, the Remeron just doesn't work and I can literally feel my brain misfiring and hiccupping. - Barbara

> I have been trying Zoloft, worked wonders for the first month for the OCD. Then I began to get physically ill from it. Pdoc cut my dose in half and I think it is worse. Do you guys have any ideas on what to try? I have tried Luvox and Paxil with no luck, too sedating.
