OCD, Anxiety, depression.

I'm on Dilantin 200mg for OCD, Anxiey and depression. Been on it for 7 weeks, how long does it take for Dilantin to be effective. Anyone else on Dilantin for those conditions, and what is the optimum dose for those problems?

Re: OCD, Anxiety, depression.

I was on Prozac in 2005 and reacted very badly,high anxiety, somewhat sicidal, was hospitalized for 3 days. Was placed on Zoloft in Nov 2007and was on it for 3 years and then went off it, cos even though it lessen the anxiety, the OCD still bothered me. On hindsight, I should have stayed with Zoloft, cos lately this year the anxiety level intensified and and so did the OCD. Have problems waking up really early each day, couldn't go back to sleep and have this terrible feeling. Mornings are bad for me, but feel somewhat better later in the evenings

Re: OCD, Anxiety, depression.

On top of everything, I had lost a lot of weight, probably because of hyperactivity. Curently 88.6 lbs at 5' 3 1/2. Was 90.6 lbs before I was placed on Dilantin.
