Well hey everyone :) I have had mental health issues for the past 18 months. I was diagnosed with PTSD and anxiety and because i was having constant obsessive thoughts about harming myself. i was perscriped effexor SR of a morning and Seroquel at night with the effexor helping my constant anxiety and feelings of dread and doom but nothing to these horrible obsessive thoughts around order and lists and being convinced anything i do could cause someone to die etc.

So i have just today come from my psychiatrists office with a diagnosis of OCPD and have been perscribed Chloripramine to take at night. Has anyone had experience with the drug and it helping obsessive thoughts.

I am also extremely concerned with how intrusive my thoughts are and the intensity is horrific i honestly 24/7 obsess about certain things or people, I think about it/them all day and dream about them/it and from my waking moment it is in my mind. I create constant fantasys and obsessions in my mind and it is exahusting!! I also have issues with magical thinking.. I have obsessions about superstitions causing death or bad luck and constantly fear bad karma or bad luck for doing or thinking things wrong..

I am honestly on my last try with this, I am emotionally, physically and spiritually exhausted by obsessions and am being to feel deep hopelessness. Can anyone share there experience with obsessive thinking and medications.

Thank you for your time

Skaters.
