> Have tried every ssri under the sun, and have had just terrible luck.....I have not tried these two.....and wondering what you think is best for ocd, and anxiety???? I need something that is more weight neutral, as I CANNOT gain weight, I already have a terrible weight problem, ugh.....I feel as though I am at a loss, with no answers. I cannot take topamax, due to a previous kidney stone situation. please help, any advice would be appreciated....thank you.


Yes, Topomax in my opinion is overprescribed for its theoretical weight loss when it can cause kidney stone issues and even nasty gall bladder problems (I think, if I recall.)


Everybody is different in terms of gaining weight, but the two most sedating (and thus less anxiety provoking) SSRIs are Luvox and Paxil. Paxil is a greater red flag among people in general for slight to medium weight gain. Personally, I never gained weight from Luvox. Luvox is, generic though it may be, truly actually one of the best SSRIs for OCD from my experience besides the pseudo SSRI (SRI) Anafranil, which carries side effect issues of tricyclics. Dosing may need to be at the maximum (300) or if your doctor is comfortable, really for OCD, 400 or if you can stand, 450.
