Hi everyone,
thank you in advance for answering my question.

I’m a 28 yo male with DDNOS and OCD diagnosed.

I take these medications:
- Escitalopram 20 mg (in the morning)
- Lamotrigine 200 mg (2 x 100 mg)
- Pregabalin 150 mg (2 x 75 mg)
- Cariprazine 1.5 mg (at night)
- Clonazepam 2 mg (at night)

I would like to ask you an advice about this therapy.
What do you think about?

I know you are not doctors, but I would like a second opinion or some suggestion from you according to your drug treatment.

My main symptoms are mental rumination and, obvioulsy, depersonalization. These are difficult to manage.

Thank you very much
Best

Hi! Thank you for your reply. I had taken either sertraline (200 mg in the morning) or olanzapine (till 20 mg at bedtime), but sertraline didn’t work and olanzapine gave me extra weight and constipation :(

then i would try seroquel / quetiapine . because in my experience people who dont tolerate zyprexa tolerate seroquel and vice versa . but ask your doc if seroquel would be a good idea
