I'm wondering if there is anything that targets intense fear of the unknown. my wife has ocd. she also experiances intense depression. she is taking cymbalta and for two weeks or so the drug ziprexa. she was taking buspar for years but got so bad she stopped. now she is back on the buspar but the fear remains.
I could discuss different drugs, but to be honest a visit to her psychiatrist would be the very best thing she could do. If she is just using her GP, then get a psychiatrist right away. Talking to a neurologist would not be a bad idea either, to rule out an physical brain problems.
The symptoms you describe are too complicate for anyone but a doctor to make actual drug recommendations. Others may be able to give you their experience if they have similar issues, but not all drugs work the same for all people.
Please give us an update after she sees the psychiatrist.
