Sorry, no help with D-cycloserine -- Looks like it is being used as an adjunct to CBT/ERP for those with OCD--If you are looking for other potential treatments for OCD have you thougt about Namenda (memantine)--very safe. low side effect profile and in clinical trials at a number of places--at this point mostly anecdotal reports but by some the leading experts in the field--Good Luck--I have some OCD--fca

D-cycloserine 4 is an antibiotic used for TB--Namenda
is for early alzheimers--Is that what you are asking

In Australia there is a clinical trial into the effectiveness of cycloserine for whatever it is it treats. I rang up the bloke who runs it.
But I live too far away to be in it myself.

I am hoping that there are more alternative therapies because my mind constantly feels overstimulated. Since all this my energy levels have drastically reduced.
