OCDThu, Jul 19th 2012
I am a RN and my OCD went very very bad after my son was born. Still unable to work. I was on Luvox 300mg and a 75 daily. I have been very inconsistent with the meds because they make me so tired. I just started Prozac 20mg today....any suggestions? I have been seeing a CBT therapist but nothing works for me. I'm struggling with Germaphobia which focuses on blood and hit and run OCD. I do not need to be normal but it would be nice to be able to drive my kids to the park without circling for hours....
