Not to answer the question in Linkadge's place, far from it, but when I was on selegiline without an SRI to counter the obsessive-compulsive side-effects, I got a disastruous mix of OCD and drive.

At one point, I was terrified of coming in our shed because of the *possibility* that asbestos material had ever been stacked
there.

And I got on the verge of ringing the doorbell at our backyard neighbours because I thought they may *perhaps* have asbestos plates lying on the roof of their shed and *perhaps* they we're gonna saw in that material.

While on selegiline, I saw asbestos everywhere.

Dextroamphetamine can paradoxically help me to endure stuff that would otherwise make me depressed as hell or scare the sh*t out of me. But that's only when I can concentrate on a task that I like at least a little bit. I had to take care of a hyperactive foster brother once, taking him to a playground. I hated it and felt unable to entertain him. He started banging with a stick on a large kind of xylophone built into a playhouse. I was terrified of having my hearing damaged. Dex only made it worse for me in that situation.


Current meds: clomipramine 225mg, fluvoxamine (Luvox) 50mg
As needed: bethanechol 25-50mg, oxazepam 5-10mg
