> I know there may be some evidence of high dopamine/high NE activity... but not neccesarilly "levels". Also... like all mental problems, I think OCD is much more complex than simple neurotransmitter dysfunction. I mean... I suffer OCD/ADD/GAD/Depression, with anhedonia being a big part of my depression. So let's say OCD is related to high dopamine activity... but then ADD and anhedonia are related to low dopamine activity.. yet I suffer from all of it. It's just too simplified of an explanation.

I know low serotonin and high DA levels are over simplified versions of analysing OCD.

It is possible that for a sub-type of people, they have LOW DA levels and yet exhibit OCD traits.

I believe that the following deserves much more research and better drugs will be invented to fight OCD.

1. serotonin receptors

2.dopamine levels

3. NE levels

4. GABA system

5. Mutated genes

6. Nutritional deficiency
