I started taking antidepressants for severe anxiety and OCD. I have been on them for 20 years, and have changed melds over and over. My current doctor just keeps increasing them, and I am worried about taking so much. I currently take venlafaxine 225mg per day., trazodone 450mg per day and anafranil, 150mg per day. Does anyone know how these doses compare with others'? I still have symptoms of ocd, and still experience insomnia about 3 nights per week. My doctor will not give any benzodiazepines but I am given ambien as needed. I wonder if my symptoms wouldn't be better treated with Valium, Xanax or something like that, instead of constantly increasing my doses?
