Hi there. We cannot diagnose you on the forum. It looks like you have seen a professional and got a diagnosis. I understand that it is costly and this puts a financial burden on people. You mentioned medication...are you currently taking medication?
thank you for the reply. i have stopped taking medications..i have tried effexor, lexapro, ritalin, lamotrigine, etc but none worked
He didnt refer me to anyone..but i have already gone to see psychologist once. sorry to say but i was disappointed..the psychologist didnt really spend time to give some advice..he just kept on saying "you have to tone down your life" etc..and i prefer medications as i think counselling would not be of any help. i think talking to friends is much better cause they also give the same advice as the psychologist
And you stayed on the medications at least 4 weeks to make sure they didn't work for you? What about Wellbutrin? I take Wellbutrin for OCD and it works well for me. Might be worth a try. Also, learning how to deal with the thoughts is very important. Of course you need to find a psychologist that teaches CBT and that you like and feel you are getting something from.
