I was on celexa for 11 years for anxiety/OCD. In 2011 my anxiety got very bad. I stayed on celexa but upped the dosage from 40mg to 60mg. I was also prescribed Wellbutrin 100mg and gabapentin 100mg 4 times a day. The celexa was reduced to 40mg and I stayed on those until November 2014. Doc and me thought the celexa wasn't working well as I was having more obsessional thinking. I was taken off celexa and put on luvox 100mg in addition to the Wellbutrin and gabapentin. I just feel like it isn't working as well as I would like. My question is would lexapro be an option instead of luvox given my history with celexa. Any insight is appreciated.
Hi Henry if your still not feeling that good after all this time sounds like you or they should have tried something sooner no reason to suffer with this stuff..Yes they do use Lexapro for ocd to I do know that a older drug anailfril is a medication that many people with severe OCD have gotten much relief from ask the doctor and see which she or he would feel would work better they have all you history... I wish you luck I know its not fun.just hang in there stay positive and do the best you can my friend Chuck1957 sorry here is the right spelling on the drug i put down..Anafranil for OCD... ask your doctor..all my best wishes..chuck
