    Lorazepam for Obsessive compulsive disorder

    At first I only got (inpatient) Zyprexa prescribed-whereby the medical doctor who had also-as it seemed to me-had used out of a trial mood paired with helplessness. But he did a little luck with it. At least if you have already tried almost all atypicals with mostly strong side effects (like constant resting heart rate above 100 (with Seroquel), restlessness (with Solian), Parkinsonoid (with Abilify and Risperdal).) Then again about 6 weeks after the inpatient discharge psychotic I then spent more than three years tinkering with the dose of Zyprexa (between 5mg-30mg) to control the remaining compulsive impulses, but Zyprexa had no effect on this, so I started taking Lorazepam ( However, this has only dampened the fears associated with the obsessive-compulsive impulses / thoughts.Finally, I have discontinued the antidepressant Cymbalta before half-a-half (actually unsuitable for schizophrenia with obsessive-compulsive impulses) and replaced with sertraline (also here maximum ambulant dose 200mg) and that has then completely shot down my bird he rarely (not at all) in frightening situations of coercion and have for a half year a constant dose of 10mg Zyprexa, 200mg Sertraline and 2mg Lorazepam (Tavor). Since then, I have no more mental limitations and do not waste any time trying out anything new, let alone rummaging back on the dose (that’s pure poison!). Note, of course, I also had the strong compulsory weight gain of Zyprexa: from 60Kg on up to 82kg – today I am constantly between 73kg-75kg.

    Side effects: Increase in weight

    Lorazepam for Obsessive compulsive disorder

    Have taken Lorazepam for a period of five weeks because of a compulsive disorder. At first only irregular, but then more and more often (dependency development). In fact, it helps against the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder, but only as long as you are on it. When you come down they get worse. I also suddenly had to fight with suicidal thoughts. That’s completely alien to me otherwise. I am glad that I do not take it now. Other side effects of Lorazepam: Hair loss (still has not stopped) and itchy rash on the hands.

    Side effects: Suicidal ideation; Hair loss

    Lorazepam for Obsessive compulsive disorder

    Hallihallo, I have had good experiences with both medications. Tavor (which is actually the active ingredient lorazepam) I took about 3 years ago because of my anxiety disorder. That was pretty bad back then. I was set on Citalopram. In order to have an easier entry, I got at the same time Tavor. At the beginning one tablet with 1 mg and then outgrown, up to 0.25 mg. The Tavor completely took away my fear. I was soooo thankful back then. I had side effects, however: – tiredness-swim from reality and dream (that I could then keep apart difficult then, or I did not remember exactly whether things really happened, or I had only dreamed ^ ^) feeling how to be drugged -branch-feeling that everything does not matter -grand smiles: D I got Lorazepam again a few weeks ago, because I tried to sell citalopram and get along without medication. Unfortunately it has led to fear and panic and even obsessive thoughts. Then I switched to fluoxetine, which made everything worse. So again taken Citalopram and get lorazepam at the same time, because the fear and panic were so strong again. But above all, the obsessive thoughts that made me really ready … Also taken back to the beginning of 1 mg and then cut out. Here I had only fatigue as a side effect, because I am after 1-2 days equal to half a tablet. That was enough for me then, thank God! I can recommend it to bridge such periods. I’ve always got it now, in case I have an emergency. Not happening yet, but I feel safer. But you should not take it for long and if possible put it down quickly. Even if it is difficult, but if at the same time e.g. SSRI is given, then you can bridge the time needed for the SSRI to work. Then you can Lorazepam o.ä. settle again. You just become easily dependent on such drugs. Not only mentally, but also physically, which is bad … Fortunately, this is not the case with today’s SSRIs.
