Hi, Phillipa, I have over the last year or so folllowed your posts and you are always so nice, supprtive and sweet. I will also add that we are all in good company here. A lot of the same symtomology runs rampant through this special place called "Babble" I don't think it is fair for a dr. to just say "LUvox is for OCD" I have OCD, panic,constant brain fog, dizziness, de-realization etc GAD and all the crap that goes with the soft bi-polar "label". However LUvox was just the first SSRI that was FDA approved to treat OCD..with the drug , Anafranil being the first effective tca for this condition... I have taken Effexor 300 to 375 mg as my main AD for the last 11 years ..it does not cut the job anymore for my GAD/OCD symptoms or depression...etc. But that being said..I beleive any SSRI or me-too type drug has the potential to treat these general conditions. Samples, Samples, Samples and marketing, marketing , $$$ and more marketing .... In any case what ever You, myself or Scott or any of us are feeling or "not feelng" , I know we all beleive we desperately need relief.... I push my self everyday and I hate leaving the safe confines of my little apartment but at the same time I crave human interaction and am horribly agitated and anxious 85 to 90 % of the time I am out. I am on 600mg Tri-leptal and I switch between K and Valium (just recently) dep. on mucle spasms and psychic tension and it barely does the job. I am not giving up. I honestly get feeling more suicidal from the agitation at times than I do from the depression. Soon we shall find relief. Best to you
