> I think you should wait it out a bit. I've had similar effects with MAOIs when a dosage went too high, but later, when I was used to that dosage, these effects disappeared. Depending on how much you increased your dose, you could back down a little and increase more slowly, if the sensation is too disruptive. Otherwise, I would just wait a while and see if it resolves.

I only increased by 5mg so I'll wait it out.

Also, my psychiatrist agreed to add in Memantine either before or after we increase to 60mg! (Ideally before....). He said he didn't really think there was any evidence it would do much for OCD, but he didn't have any reasons against trying it. He also said he thought it would be a good augment for an MAOI, though didn't go into detail as to why .. maybe because it's cholinergic?

I'm so happy! Mostly because I'd been terrified of asking due to tenuous evidence re: it's stimulant-tolerance-preventing properties, so overcoming that fear was a big deal for me!
