Nardil is the best but for OCD Anafranil is the be

Posted by ross c on March 14, 2003, at 22:42:56

been on nardil for a year now and it has changed my life. yes i only post sometime on this thread because it is good to stay away and chart your daily progress alone. ive been on meds my whole life ( 36 ) years old and been inpatient 8 times. luckily no ECT for me yet. ok heres my deal with OCD.
we all respond differently to all medications. this is common. when i was 25 i re-devolped obsessions that where completly unreal. i went inpatient to Hampton hospital in new jersey here and one of the most prominent doctors, dr.charles dackis who wrote the commercial " this is drugs" " this is your brain on drugs" and many books on psychiatry. well he placed me on Anafranil and tritrated me up to the full 250mgs and added lithium 1200mgs. at that present time benzo's in hospitals where a no-no.
within my 5 week stay the anafranil cleared up my depression fully and almost fully cleared up my OCD problems.
the thing with OCD is if you have it you are always going to have some symptoms no matter what you take. believe me ive been on all the ssri's etc.. and still had some obsessions. its inbreed in you and you must learn to deal with it and live with it. medicine helps but it will NEVER clear all the symptoms of OCD.
this message is intended for a certain someone who i think is getting obsessed with his medications and needs to take a step back and work on the issues at hand through therapy....
good luck to him and good luck to all.
i take Nardil for depression and social anxiety.
at 75mgs with 2.5mgs bid of Zyprexa and 2400mgs of neurontin and 1mg QID of klonopin seems to be working and complementing each other......
