Omg intrusive thoughts are bad today. I've just taken 10mg olanzapine and three Phenergan to knock myself out. How can ppl be sure I'm not going to hurt anyone?? I wish I had their confidence. Does anyone else with ocd sedate themselves to ensure no one gets hurt?

Hope you are feeling better.

Just wanted to say that antipsychotics alone (or/and in highdoses) can worsen the OCD. You need to take them together with medication for OCD, such as antidepressants and anxiolitics. So, do you take any other medication?

I'm on sertraline and olanzapine. Plus prazosin to help with nightmares.

Very true, it can also not work well for schizophrenics.

I smoke weed to help me sleep but I think it's actually making me worse.
Yeah, if your nervous strong weed can make it worse, though you can try red seal Hash or lime grass, to just relax and listen to some pleasing music, or read a self-help book about recovery from PTSD. helps with watching tit's on youtube as well LOL.
