So I was taking Lexapro with Gabapentin. I got better within a month or so. However, my OCD symptoms did not disappear completely. So my was putting me on 40 MG of Lexapro and the insurance was not covering it, because of Lexapro being a 20 MG a day limit thing. So he switched me to Luvox. But keeping me on Gabapentin. So about a week later or two, I felt like I took a step back with my OCD and thoughts. As in they returned back a little bit. I have been on Luvox for about a good 3 weeks. Should I give Luvox some time?
Hi, dowdow! That's unfortunate because Luvox is most frequently prescribed specifically for OCD and social anxiety disorders. But not all drugs work the same for each individual. Although it's already been three weeks you might still give the Luvox a little more time to see if things improve.
If not, what about going back to the 20mg Lexapro and adding on an anti-psychotic like Abilify or Rexnulti which work on symptoms in their own right and also booster the effects of the Lexapro?
Adding Rexnulti to my medicine cabinet was one the best things that's happened to me.
Best wishes, Wildcat
