Can we all post our OCD meds?

I am new here and wondering what meds you have been on/are currently on and how they have worked for your OCD and/or depression and anxiety. I have bipolar II, OCD, ADHD, and GAD. I take Lamictal, Topamax, Risperdal, Vyvanse and Luvox, with Xanax as a PRN med. I have been on a couple different SSRI's before for the OCD and had to be very careful introducing them because of the ADHD and bipolar medications. Luckily my psychiatrist specializes in ADHD and OCD issues and is knowledgeable about treatments and meds for them both.

We are trying Luvox this time around because the last medication was not working and I took a med break for several months, then symptoms became out of control again and my therapist encouraged me to go back on medication.

So I was kind of wondering if any of you might like to share what you were on?

Re: Can we all post our OCD meds?

I am on 100 mg of Luvox. It has been 8 weeks on the medication, but only 4 days on the 100 mg. I am noticing a huge difference with my intrusive thoughts. I can actually sleep, eat and think my own thoughts from time to time. I am the best when I am kept busy. The thoughts are still there, but not as intense. I am hoping in time this will pass. I am going to CBT and I am going to see a psychiatrist in 3 weeks.
