There are many medications that are used for ocd and prodep 20 is one of them. Doses need to be titrated and also there may arise a need to titrate the medications or augment the treatment with other medications depending on your response to treatment. I hope that you are also using therapy in the form of counseling to help with your obsessive thoughts leading to compulsive behaviors and cbt is the preferred form of counseling. If you have further questions regarding side effects please ask them on a private forum. Look forward to hearing from you. If you need help with booking an appointment online with me on this website either text, an appointment for a confidential and private consultation you may do so by contacting the help desk of Lybrate.

I have been on medication for 13 years for emotional and mood problems. Prodep, paxidep, qutipin, clozapine, olanzapine, fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, clozapine. Nothing worked for me. Should I take 5 htp and l tyrosine for these. If yes. How much.

If formula 1, cars can't reach you to a place, can small cars do the same. You seem to be having resistant symptoms and very high potency drugs including clozapine have been given. 5htpn and l tyrosine are very very weak over the counter health supplements which are very expensive and lack much efficacy. Better come to terms with the illness and aim to select the medication group which gives best relief amongst the one which you have mentioned in consult with your psychiatrist. Good luck.

Prodep 10 MG Capsule can make you feel drowsy or dizzy. It is advised not to drive or do any other activity that requires your complete concentration. In case you are an elderly patient, be careful when you are getting up from a sitting or sleeping position to avoid a sudden fall. Also, you must avoid alcohol while you are under this medication.

You can have 90 to 100% symptom reduction for OCD. Prodep i.e. fluoxetine is a wonderful druh, it s dose needs to be upped or some drug combined to achieve this, If u have weight gain, the medication can be changed or a drug added to prevent weight gain property of prodep

I have OCD for past 7 years. My OCD triggered only during my exams. Last year I took prodep 20 mg one month before exams and then stop it. I have my exams in February, I have OCD attack not able to concentrate on studies. Is it ok to use prodep 20 mg for 1 month. I saw in internet that it cause many side effects like erectile dysfunction and decrease libido.

Hello- Prodep is the brand name of a medicine called fluoxetine. Common side effects in men include decreased libido and difficulty getting an erection. Some men have trouble maintaining an erection. Men taking Prodep also report delayed or blocked orgasm. So more you use more chances of getting ED.

Myself having ocd problem. Taking prodep 60 for quite a few years. Things were fine with less depressive issues sometimes. From last few days ocd issues have got stronger. I am obsessing the intrusive thoughts very frequently. Therefore sometimes forgetting the day to day job.

Hello you may be aware that ocd can be a chronic condition which can be more prominent during stressful periods. Ocd can be effectively managed by a combination of medication and psychological therapy like cbt. You have been on prodep (fluoxetine) for few years with certain degree of benefit. Have you ever had cbt? Cognitive behavioural therapy (cbt) will be beneficial to control ocd symptoms. Kindly check with your doctor about availability of cbt in your city.

Hi. I've been suffering from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder for the last 11 months and. I was diagnosed about this an year back and I've been put on fluoxetine (Prodep or Prozac). But I'm not feeling that great on the medication and I've put on nearly 7-8 of weight and I don't feeling like doing on the medication. I came across Ayurvedic herbs like Ashwagandha and Brahmi for OCD. I wanted to know about dosage of Brahmi and Ashwagandha for OCD and as well as if they're affective as the current medication. Kindly help.

Dear lybrate-user, You should address your question to an Ayurveda doctor. Otherwise because of the word 'OCD' it comes to me, a psychiatrist. Our way of OCD management is to prescribe Fluoxetine kind of medication at higher dose for many months, may be years. These medicines do not cause weight gain. Check out other causes of weight gain in your case. We may add a psychotherapy to it, if necessary. I may take you up for cognitive therapy at your thinking level, with ERP (exposure and response prevention). I have no knowledge about Brahmi and Ashwagandha.
