> Yea you've been a great help I've been eager to check my email all day haha thanks a lot man!

Oh that's good!

>As for clonidine I have thought of it, I do have slight low bp due to pots syndrome, but at this rate that is not a deterant, I'll just have to eat more salt.

You wouldn't necessarily need to eat more salt. Clonidine does not always cause much postural BP drop, you would have to try it and find out. It tends to reduce heart rate slightly. So long as you started with a low dose and adjusted cautiously it should not be dangerous. After long term use, clonidine needs to be withdrawn gradually.

>Little worries about impotence but that's just my ocd talking.

If you do find an effective treatment and suffer erectile dysfunction you could always use sildenafil or similar. I get the impression that with the current severity of your OCD it would be difficult to put erections to good use anyway, so you may as well concentrate on dealing with the OCD first.

>I was just reading a paper on how opiates are particularly effective in ocd with tics, and I can certainly say the morphine they gave me in the hospital obliterated my ocd and especially my doubt which was great.

Effective briefly but you need something long term. Furthermore, extended use would probably lead to hormonal disturbances and more erectile dysfunction.
