OCD getting worse?

I've noticed since I started taking anti-psychotic medication for an unrelated reason my obsessive thoughts have been getting more frequent and I am doing my compulsion more.
I'm wondering if it's the medication doing it or the fact that since I'm no longer having psychotic symptoms I just have to much time to think now.

Re: OCD getting worse?

Hi LaFin!
I am not too sure about your medication causing your OCD to get worse. I do know that certain meds that I have been on, seem to have caused an increase in OCD behavior.
The very best thing for you to do regarding this, is to ask the doctor who gave you the med. There are so many different concoctions of meds now, that it is possible that your doc will simply need to adjust a dosage, or let you try another med.
I hope that helps!
