OCD/intrusive thoughts

Posted , 6 users are following.

Does anyone have OCD/intrusive thoughts and celexa helped? I'm thinking I have ocd from PTSD and they gave me cit but I might need a different med. I was on prozac before which I should have never stopped taking because it took it away but last time I tried to go back on it I had awful side effects.

      Is celexa helping you? Yes zyprexa but after reviewing it I don't know if I will try it. It's suppose to be for resistant depression but I've only tried to SSRIs prozac worked great and celexa didn't. Zyprexa is for other things like bipolar and I'm not that

      I'm not sure if it's helping me. I went up to 15mg last night. I know they say 20mg is when it actually starts to work so I'm gonna go up to that in a few days. my husband and my marriage counselor says they noticed a difference in me yesterday. but I still feel the same on the inside. atleast I think so. u should ask about lexapro. I was told it was the "cousin" to celexa so usually if one don't work the other will. have u got into cncc yet?

      I still haven't gotten in. I'm calling back today. I have been on paxil for 4 days and thought I was doing better but woke up this morning feeling awful sad my intrusive thoughts still haven't went away. Some days less than others. I also have been having bad dreams.

      that's good. I went today. he wants me to do 20mg for 3more weeks and if I'm not feeling 100% back to normal then up it to 30. he said 40mg is usually the dose that works
