I take Prozac for OCD. I have had OCD for many years but just started taking Prozac in October. I have gradually noticed a difference and usually for the better but still have times when I seem like I'm slipping back again. I have also noticed that I have times elevated mood,which is great....lol....but it's almost too elevated....lol. Anyway hope that you find the medication thats right for you. Oh.by the way I take 30mg a day.
Hi, with help from my therepist, realized I suffer from OCD. I get terrible thoughts that maybe I have done something wrong that will hurt someone I love. I get horrible thoughts in my head that wont go away. I have had this in the past and it maybe would last a few days or so but now I am on three months of the same thought haunting me. As a result i engage in strange behavior to avoid thinking or to aleviate the thought. The thoughts are irrational and the worst case scenerio type things. I used to take Klonopin but now I am pregnant and had to stop. I am hoping to be put on something safer, like zoloft. Has anyone taken Zoloft and had it work for them?
i did take Zoloft 50mg daily however made my OCD worse and also made me suicidal, I took for 5 months. Ive now b een taking Ciprimil (40mgs daily) for 2 years and it really works for me and took throughout pregnancy (20mgs daily) and after breastfeeding 40mg dailly.
Wow thanks for the info. Ive been working with therapist and I think I am dealing with it o.k. More anxiety than anything. I am scared to take anything while pregnant so I am going to try and hold off on meds as long as I can
