Being a 5ht2 antagonist?

Maybe mCCP?

I don't know. mCPP is a metabolite of trazodone that acts to produce anxiety and agitation in some people. It can also make obsessiveness worse.

trazadone is sedating....it could be sedating the mind to think about one topic.....

what about the effexor dose? would your doctor maybe consider moving higher on effexor?

I've had akathisia from Trazodone, but not obsessive thoughts. In fact, its brother nefazodone (Serzone) _cured_ my waking in the middle of the night with obsessive, chaotic thoughts.

Hmm I think it probably could, as trazodone added to my Parnate leaves me sad and unmotivated in the am, followed by very irritable in the afternoon.

Other 5ht2 antags haven't done this. Hydroxyzine did not. possible 5ht1, possibly he metabolite.

I was on 75mg until may 2017 and am now down to 55mg. Going 50 soon. The obsessiveness got better!

I hope that i can get rid of it completely along with the Trazodone. It hasnt been working for months so i get rid of it either way.

Trazodone has had negative results in studies. It doesn't seem to work well for OCD.
