I have moderate symptoms of OCD... not sure if they're enough to give me a dx of OCD, but they can be pretty intrusive and annoying. I have this weird thing were I count the numbers of words in sentences, and letters in words. I'm *very* compulsive about that. And you know that whole thing when you're a kid about not stepping on cracks (for fear of breaking your mother's back? <g>)? Well I absolutely *refuse* to step on cracks in tiling and in sidewalks, lol. It sounds totally ridiculous, I know. But on Thursday my pdoc put me on tramadol (generic Ultram) and the symptoms have disappeared entirely. In addition, it's helped enormously with the depression that's returned since I quit Mirapex a few days ago. I'm on 50mg tid now, and when I go back on the 23rd, we're probably raising it to 100mg tid. Seeing as how I've tried every med out there (including Luvox, Anafranil, Zyprexa, Nardil, etc.), I'd have to say that, for me at least, tramadol is the ultimate OCD medication.
