Need suggestions on med for ocd...

In reply to Re: med to augment luvox? any suggestions? krybrahaha78, posted by yxibow on January 31, 2006, at 2:04:11

I have been on tons of meds for my condition. I have OCD, Generalized Anxiety, Social Anxiety, and mild case of tourettes. Klonopin handles my anxiety well, but i only take it as needed. Luvox doesnt seem to be cuttin it for me anymore and my wife thinks im a prick when im on it. I was off it for a while cause i thought i could deal with things without medication but i couldnt stop worrying about stuff. Now im looking for something to maybe completely replace the luvox--but i have already been on every med for OCD it seems. Any Suggestions?

Medications I have tried are:

Paxil/CR, Zoloft, Celexa, Effexor, Buspar, Prozac, Lexapro, Remeron, Klonopin, Ativan, Tranxene, Luvox, Neurontin, risperdal.

I ended up with Luvox and tranxene combo for a while until the tranxene lost its effectiveness--and then added small dose of risperdal which seemed to help ocd along with the luvox but made me a zombie--so he took me off it. Now i take luvox and klonopin as needed. Luvox doesnt work that well anymore and seems to make me irritated for some reason, didnt use to. anyone have any suggestions what i could either add to it or a different med i could try?
