Fairnymph, I am no expert on neurotransmitters, but I have found that my periods of agitated depression never end without at least one day of pure obsession. One day of pure knotted twisting thoughts and I know I'm starting to look up. I don't understand it, but it seems pretty consistent.

I have OCD too, and haven't found anything to work for it like Luvox. Remeron knocked me out for a weekend, at two different doses, on two different weekends. Wellbutrin and Effexor both triggered nasty agitated hypomanias. Luvox made the OCD disappear and if I ever decide to go back on an SSRI, I think that will be my choice. Unfortunately, I didn't care much for the apathy after 4 years on Luvox.

I do hope in your case the OCD returning is a good sign.


(By the way, I find the idea of OCD as a defense mechanism fascinating. I've often toyed with the thought myself.)
