For pain take tablet paracetamol 650 mg eight hourly and if pain persists I will suggest you to meet an ENT doctor for diagnosis and further management.

I have been suffering of ocd for last 5 years. Now I consulted with a doctor. He asked me to take fluoxetine 20 mg, fludac.daily 1 capsule. I checked in google about this fludac. Noticed several side effects of fluoxetine. So I am worried about the side effects. Should I continue to take fluoxetine? And how long I can take fluoxetine?

Dear lybrate-user, for 5 long years, you have been living with ocd. If you can continue to live with it, worry about side effects of fluoxetine. If you want your quality of your life to improve without ocd, please put to test whether you develop these googled side effects or not. Please continue to take fluoxetine as long as the doctor has prescribed. Please go back to her/him without stopping, to increase the dose - weighing the effect and side effect. How long to take, depends on your severity of ocd and other disorders along with ocd, your way of challenging the compulsions (rituals) etc.

Dear Narendra, Since how long you are taking Concor amlo? If it has not caused depression all these days, it my not be a side effect of Concor. In persons suffering from hypertension and lipid disturbances (cholesterol), vascular depression is common. Apart from treating these medical illnesses, you need to be treated for depression also to improve your quality of life. It is OK to take rivotril and fludac, if it is prescribed for you. Probably you can stop rivotril in 15 days. But not fludac. Fludac starts its action after 2-3 weeks and needs to be continued for 6-9 months. Sleep disturbance at night needs to be diagnosed properly and treated. It might be due to waking up for urination or personal reasons or any other cause. But DON'T take rivotril for sleep. You may become dependent on it.

I am taking fluoxetine from several months for OCD. Can I use liver tonic with fluoxetine? Can I use antibiotic like cephalexin, cefixime in infection cases with fluoxetine? And what are the drugs which should not be taken with fluoxetine?

Your symptoms suggest clinical depression or major depressive disorder. Depression being a brain illness, it needs pharmacological treatment. You are on starting dose of fluoxetine. That might not help. You need proper medicine along with psychotherapy sessions.

Dear lybrate-user, you have been fighting against ocd. Please take cbt with erp (exposure and response prevention) from a clinical psychologist or cbt trained psychiatrist. Your fighting will be more effective. Please continue all the tablets along with it.
