I have OCD and I was on 150 mg of Zoloft for about five years and it was very helpful. When I got pregnant and had my baby I got off the Zoloft. My baby is two now and I tried Zoloft again at the same dose and it wasn't helpful at all. I also tried Lexapro and Celexa at 20 mg but neither helped. I was on every medication for at least 12 weeks. Is there another medication that could help my debilitating OCD ?
Morning Violet; There are still many that your doctor has not tried yet. Have you tried Wellbutrin? Then there is a whole another family of medications your doctor well know about that is mainly only for OCD patients. such as Anafranil, Luvox etc please don't give up it's well worth it and I can tell by the way you keep with them for 12 weeks before you give up on them. Keep at it. Things well get better
