Hi
ok, so since 2001, ive tried Paxil, Zoloft, Anafranil,Venlafaxine, Prozac, Luvox, Luvox with Seroquel, Luvox with Anafranil, and now back to Paxil.

Some helped, some did nothing, some helped and then pooped out.

Where do I go from here as my OCD is back with a vengeance, accompanied by depression.

Ive also tried inositol (some success) vitamins, and Omega 3

The best ive been was on Prozac and then luvox but booth pooped out

Is it worth going back on anafranil at the highest dose, not sure I tried at highest

can anything be added to Paxil to try to make it work

High dose anafranil plus low dose luvox plus inositol 3 tsp three times a day (or most you can tolerate without diarrhea) plus NAC 600mg 2 caps twice a day plus low dose Risperdal. Or Inositol and NAC alone for the fewest side effects. Let me know how you make out.

Thanks
I know my doctor is concerned to go off Paxil v slowly
So in the meantime is it ok to take Paxil with inositol and this nac. Is there a reason why NAC is recommended
Also do u recommend s pure epa fish oil or just generally what are your views on the type of fish oil one should take in respect of EPA DHA ratio

Inositol and NAC are okay with Paxil. Inositol works even better after Paxil is off.
They sell formulas with the EPAHA already worked out for you.

The only reason I ask is some say have only epa and not dha
If I cut down on Paxil to 30mg can inositol work ok remember it's hard to come down from apparently

Taper Paxil slowly to avoid withdrawal. The balance of EPA/DHA better. Takes 2 weeks for Inositol to kick in at max dose.
Some convert Paxil straight over to Prozac which has long half live and easier to taper.

So I could ask my doctor to move back to Prozac?
Can I go straight to the max dose of inositol because penzel recommended gradual
Also on my NAC solgar IT says just take one 600mg capsule daily

Easier to get off Prozac than Paxil. Faster to start with max Inositol and taper down. NAC is 600mg 2 twice a day.

hi
what are your thoughts on a kosher Whey Protein powder as a means to get more protein in the diet in the morning and also reviews it may boost L-Trypothan and other amino acids
also is it ok to take with the 50mg paroxetine, inosotil and the NAC.

also do u reckon the saliva cortisol and adrenal home tests are a waste of time to see if thats a root cause of mental health problems

Steve

Whey protein okay. Cortisol/adrenal tests can be revealing of stress or rarely other diseases that would alter treatment approach.
