I have been Dxed with OCD or more like ruminations but I am not convinced that actually right. Somaticaly i present with tightness in the face and shoulders. My mind want to figure out what it is that prevents me from feeling or going forward. There is something blocking me and my mind doesn't want to do anything until i can figure that out. So all my mind does is try and make sense of this. The best i can do is distract but it feels like i am ignoring an open wound. THis has been happening for 10 years. How does you OCD manifest itself? "Stop Obsessing!" by Reid Wilson is supposested to be a standard book i dealing with OCD? Let me know your thoughts


> > I have developed horrible OCD and have heard that aside from the tricyclic Anafranil, that Luvox (an SSRI) is the med for this ailment. Has anyone had any experience with it or any other of the newer meds, heck even Anafranil? Thanks.

> I'm trying to think of a med I haven't tried... Actually I haven't tried Luvox. I did the Anafranil thing, it didn't help me to much, may have needed a higher dosage. I have tried Prozac, Zoloft, Celexa, Risperidol, Geodon, a number of Benzos, and Klonopin. Right now I'm doing the Paxil thing for the second time around. It is helping some. I suggest you stay on the Anafranil. I'm suppose to start Exposure Response therapy soon...I will let you know how that turns out.
