I've had OCD for MANY years and have tried many different meds. I am a germaphobe to the extreme and have recently been put on Risperdone for my OCD and also for my severe mood swings. Does anyone here know anything about the drug for this condition?
ANNALEIGH yes this is very common to use this drug for other conditions AND it has been known to help with OCD by helping other mental problems like these listed are the most common..this part of using this is to get the other parts of OCD undercontrol yet not overwhelming the patient with to many medications its like a process of limittations..hope this makes sinse but it has been used for Ocd and many of these other conditions by getting them undercontrol and making you feel much better Sounds like a pretty sharp doctor by not giving you 6 rx's when many times it a trying one over the other and not hitting the patient all at once see most of these in this copy and paste are all the others that are used with this medication... give it a good try sounds like you are ready to really deal with it Agitation
Body Dysmorphic Disorder
Borderline Personality Disorder
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder
Severe Mood Dysregulation
Social Anxiety Disorder See many ocd's when they have one of these under better control it all starts falling into place i really reccomend you try this one..
