Very interesting, I will look into this, I do notice sometimes depending on what I eat it can effect my mood. For example to much milk and I feel lethargic/slowed.

Also an update. I had to discontinue the lamictal, as it was making me somewhat more anxious/triggered which in turn made me more iratable. Also experienced some bad word finding problems(saying tomato instead of ketchup). Pdoc decided to trial amphetamine. Took that for 3 days and only slept for around 2-3 hours a day....only took 2.5mg too..... I'm tempted to at times say I got kind of happy, but was not worth the headaches and tightening I. My chest. Also experienced worse paranoia and increased doubt of bad thoughts. Finally also had a somewhat euphoric effect that kept me coming back for more.......(father was an extreme alchohalic and I already present with bad traits, 1 beer turns into 10, almost always black out everytime I drink). Have not taken for a few days and am sleeping much better, much more calm, but still have damn ocd. Might try methylphenidate.

Other possible drugs potentially in my radar are:

Low dose or normal dose naltrexone: study here---> Endogenous Opioid Activity Is Associated with Obsessive-Compulsive Symptomology in Individuals with a Family History of Alcoholism

Keppra, what are everyone's views on this, have seen two people said it helped ocd, has calcium channel blockade of which my genetic tests showed I was messed up in that department. Of those who tried it how was your experience?
