How can I help you, Sir?
I am having tremendous Obsessions, Generalized Anxiety Disorder, Depression, De-personalization Disorder (and sometimes mood swings but its major on the depressive side.)
Sir, I would like to know which is the best drug for OCD which is creating a havoc in my life.
I was considering FLUVOXAMINE or CLOMIPRAMINE or PAROXETINE as the main drug for OCD. Following are rest of the drugs for my other problems.
1) Whichever of the above you deem appropriate.
2) Aripiprazole 15mg per day.
3) Pregabalin 300mg (or higher if u deem appropriate) per day
4) Clonazepam 1mg sos.
Sir, do I also need Valproate or Lamotrigine. If yes, which one is superior in my case ?
I hate to take bath, i hate to brush my teeth...
Sir, u have to finalise my meds now.....i am waiting for my meds to be taken
i need strong anti-obsessional drugs
Very often a person who begins to neglect their personal hygiene may be starting to show symptoms of schizophrenia. I cannot possibly recommend what drugs you should be taking without having seen and talked to you in person. Perhaps you would be better off continuing with Dr. Rao, or Dr. Kaushik, or Dr. Vikas.
Sir, plz help me anything
I can tell you everything that you want
plz atleast suggest me drugs
Give me a moment sir and I will give you the best information on the drugs you mentioned. If you prefer I can get you in touch with Dr. Rao, Dr. Vikas, or Dr. Kaushik. One moment please.
Fluvoxamine is often prescribed for OCD. I see that you already take it.
no....i have not taken it yet
i m just weighing the drugs effectiveness
sir, which is superior, fluvoxamine or clomipramine for my condition
Each person reacts differently to medications. Because OCD is your most pressing issue, then perhaps fluvoxamine would do the best. What does your psychiatrist recommend? I do not think that treating yourself over the internet is the safest or most effective way to treat your potentially serious problems.
one of my local doctors is prescribing fluvoxamine and the other local doctor is advocating clomipramine
ok, so i shall tell me local doctor to get me precribed FLUVOXAMINE
Clomipramine is also recommended for OCD and it very useful for panic disorder as well
now, which one do u suggest for me among the two
sir, i shall give u an excellent rating, plz solve my issue
Give me one moment please, Sir.
clomipramine or fluvoxamine , which one will be superiror to me
Fluvoxamine is better for OCD and GAD. Clomipramine is better for OCD and panic disorder.
ok, then i shall go with Fluvoxamin
According the the literature, fluvoxamine should be more effective tfor you./
now, lastly sir
do i need valproate or Lamotrigine....if so, which one is better for me ?
i always remain depressed
i dont have manic symptoms
i neglect personal hygine
to a great extent
i bathe in abt 1 week once
brush my teeth once in 2 days
plz help me sir
Lamotrigine (lamictal) is used in monopolar depression as an adjunct medication to boost the effectiveness of you antidepressants.
Why do you neglect your personal hygiene?
i dont feel like living hyginicaly
i dont like
Then it is a choice.
not a choice
its my personality, my mental problem
i neglect those
It is a compulsion then or is it something that you detest doing?
i dont know
i just neglect personal hygine
I strongly urge you, from the bottom of my heart, to discuss this with a psychiatrist. It may be an indication of the onset of schizophrenia, which can be delayed or reduced or softened by proper attention.
ok, lastly, just one thing
do i need valproate or lamotrigine , according to you //?
On the other hand, it could be your OCD but you should have it checked out
for all the problems mentioned above
According to my research, lamotrigine would be more normally given as an adjunct with an antidepressant in cases of resistant depression.
ok sir, thanks a lot....i shall tell me doc to start giving me fluvoxamine
thanks a lot.
sir, i m really in very very distress
I understand. I urge you to see a proper psychiatrist, and I shall hold you in my prayers.
thanks a lot sir :)
Thank you as well.
ok, now its time for rating
Bye and God bless you.
