HI

I am on 60mg Cymbalta and 100mg Lamictal- partial on/off success

added to that- a few spoons of inositol and fish oil since january which have helped depression and contamination OCD

However, in the absence of those obsessions, i have always had this kind of inappropriate energy in terms of the desire for arayas which eventually leads to minor acting out- this hyper feeling might be labelled bi-polar not sure.

what i want to do is find a natural supplement that may reduce this dopamine rush i get- do you recommend Vitamin B6? is it safe with my medication dose? anything else safe with medication dose and wont cause relapse of OCD?

Finding the balance is so hard- I am trying acupuncture.

Raising serotonin can help lower dopamine and improve OCD. Cymbalta can raise dopamine more so than straight SSRI's. 5HTP is a serotonin precursor that could help OCD. I have had good experience with vaporized CBD oil. Other options: lemon oil vapors, Noni fruit, magnolia bark to lower dopamine. Speak with your doctor, health food store for dosing/frequency.

CBD is the oil part of cannabis, legal across the U.S.
THC is a prescription, only legal in certain states.

Correct. The oral versions have side effects and drug interactions.

Nothing well established, but have your doctor assess for any changes.

Dr. Price, do you know of any places that dispense good quality non prescription CBD oil (Monsey area)? I was looking into it recently and was told I'd need a prescription.

And just wondering if you also had good experience with it for anxiety/panic, or only for OCD?

I don't like the whole vape thing so I ordered it in both tincture and capsule form to try out. I'm not on any meds, so drug interactions are not an issue. What dosage do you find is typically effective for panic/anxiety, and insomnia?

I also found a way to get good quality THC (medical grade) in capsule form, and want to try it for mood lifting and anxiety. Was wondering what your experience with that is, and if there are any significant drawbacks other than increased hunger or potential stomach upset.

Indica, CBD more calming. Beyond that, best to consult the distributor.
Let me know how you make out.

Okay thanks. How much CBD in mg. does it typically take to relieve symptoms, without impairing function?

Can try small dose, then increase by a little more each day as needed.
It is not an exact mg thing like FDA approved medications.
