So I'm slowly getting things under control. ADHD/GAD, but my OCD thoughts have gotten worse. I was on citalopram 40mg, but it wasn't really helping the OCD thoughts and no amount of therapy was helping. So I asked pdoc to try a new med. We settled on Zoloft for now. started at 50mg and went down to 20mg citalopram.
I should be off the citalopram by now as it's been a week, but I'm scared. My thoughts haven't gotten any better (still very disturbing) and now I am seeing words when I close my eyes while I am having these thoughts. Words that basically highlight the theme of my thoughts (death, kill, hurt, pain etc). Little purple bubble type words that appear and float away. This is very upsetting as I have no desire to act on these thoughts or images.
The only ways I can get them to subside a bit is to go wash my face or pick at my nails and cuticles (usually until they bleed)
I'm on 80mg strattera, 50mg zoloft (with 20mg citalopram still) and 1mg guanfacine. It's only been a week since I started zoloft and I'm toughing it out. Any opinions?
