Re: KLONOPIN FOR OCD?

I'd have to agree with Paxvox on this one--Klonopin is a wonderful anxiolytic, but alone, it does little for OCD. It does help some on its own, but I'd say the vast majority of OCD'ers are going to require something more than a benzodiazepine to treat their symptoms.

That being said, I believe you know that tramadol and Klonopin was a great combo for me. Xanax XR I like even better than the Klonopin, though. But the bottomline is, as far as I know, both Xanax and Klonopin promote serotonin utilization within the brain, in some way or another. I don't know of any other benzos available in the U.S. that do this, except perhaps Ativan. But this serotonergic action could be what's responsible for the mild improvement some people with OCD get from taking a benzodiazepine alone.

By the way, does anyone know if we can ever expect Deracyn (adinazolam) to be presented to the FDA?
