Hi all,

I am battling with OCD obsessive thoughts (dont know if this is pure O) for a a year now. I have taken several medications but since the end of January 2018 I am taking Anafranil along with Amitriptyline. In the past 2 months+ the dosage is 75mg of Anafranil twice a day + 25mg of Amitriptyline twice a day too. Has anyone been on that combo? Any positive effects? It has helped me a bit but the 'thoughts' are still present and that makes me feel anxious. should I give this combo more time to work or if it hasn't made a significant difference until now that means that it wont do more? Anyone has any experiences with these medications?

Many Thanks,
P.

I take 50 mg of Anafranil for OCD, in combination with some anti-depressants. Not the same combo as you though. Since taking Anafranil I've noticed a huge decrease in my OCD symptoms/behaviors. I've experienced some unpleasant side effects from Anafranil, but I think the trade-off is worth it. My OCD symptoms are 90% gone.
