I think my doctor is going to suggest I go on anti psychotics for my OCD. She has already and I’ve been hesitant. Does anyone have experience with this? Is it worth it?

      To answer most of you, I’m on sertraline (200mg) clonopin (30mg) and gabapentin (2100mg) and I still cycle through super anxious crashes every few weeks. She told me an antipsychotic would be the next step.

      My dr wants me to try vraylar (an antipsychotic) for my ocd. I’m already on an antidepressant Luvox that dosnt seem to be doing enough

      Have you been on SSRIs before? Usually that’s the first step. I accomplished a lot with CBT and ERP therapy but zoloft really helped me keep an even keel day to day

      I've been on SSRI's for 5 years and have have terrible OCD for that long as well. I feel like zoloft helps with my anxiety some, but only exposure response therapy has helped (minimally) with my compulsions. I have often wondered if antipsychotics could help me, none of my doctors have recommended it to me though. Did your doctor say why they recommended it?

      It can definitely help, but also can take awhile to find the right one. If you're struggling, I would recommend trying it, but don't get discouraged if the first one you try doesn't agree with you.
