ATTN - Djjjm - Zyprexa /OCD question.

Posted by ace on March 25, 2003, at 18:48:37

Hi Djmmm,

Thankyou for your earlier responses. At the moment my Lithium augmented with Nardil has not relieved OCD (only 7 days on Lithium 2 days-250mg, 5 days 500mg)

If the Lithium doesn't work I am really thinking that their could be a significant problem with dopaminergic transmission underlying my OCD. And this brings me to Zyprexa and Risperidone. As Dopamine antagonist (& they are serotonin agonists I've heard -at least for Zyprexa) I've heard that in augmentation with serotoninergic drugs they have produced a lot og great effects - some extrodinary.

Do you think Nardil + Lithium + Zyprexa (OR Risperidone) would be a good bet (or drop the Lithium?)

Do you believe, as I have reasoned, there very well could be a dopamine problem behind my OCD?

Any other comments most appreciated.

BTW, clomipramine enhances noradrenaline, but we have that 'covered' with Nardil, right?

Thanks, Djmmm.
