>Risperidal also caused bad salivation which was unpleasant

Dopamine antagonists can cause hypersalivation, but to experience it at such a low dose is unusual. It's more commonly seen with high doses of older neuroleptics such as haloperidol. In fact, you could be extremely sensitive to haloperidol, so it may be a good idea to avoid it entirely for now.


Clonidine, which is sometimes used to suppress tics, also appears to acutely reduce OCD symptoms - even after a single dose. Whether it has any sustained effectiveness in OCD is unknown. Assuming you do not have low blood pressure, you could potentially try it.

'Following clonidine, but not following placebo, patients transiently experienced a significant reduction of obsessions and compulsions.'
