Anti-depressant medication that doesn't worsen HPPD

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

 

I suffer from pretty debilitating OCD cocurrent with HPPD. I have been on many SSRIs and I am now on the tricyclic anti-depressant known as Clomipramine. All of these have had such horrible side effects, with acute worsening of my HPPD symptoms however have enormously helped with my OCD. I've kind of had to outweigh the positives with the negatives. I'm trying to come off of clomipramine with the help of a doctor but I fear being on no medication with cause a relapse in my OCD where I will have to be hospitalized. Does anyone experience OCD whether severe or mild who uses a medication that helps with both the OCD and HPPD without causing any worsening of the HPPD?

 

Thanks for taking the time to read my post

Interesting... I never heard of Inositol up until now, but looked it up. I guess its just a Vitamin B8 dietary supplement?  Correct me if I'm wrong though. 

And yeah I guess everyone is affected differently by medications. I know that my body was VERY sensitive to the withdrawal affects from Zoloft. I swore I'd never go back on after. However, I might have to find a SSRI that works. I heard somewhere that Prozac may help with palinopsia which is my worst symptom to date.
