The right dose: Inositol, one of the B vitamins, is not formally indicated for the treatment of OCD and has some interactions, including one with Lithium, that can be dangerous. The literature suggests that between 2 and 18 gm/day in divided doses can be effective. You should definitely talk with your health care provider before starting an inositol titration.

Many things: Dextromethorphan itself can cause a sense of anxiety. As dextromethorphan overdose is associated with seizures, it is also possible that you are experiencing a sense of being spaced out for this reason, or for some others. I would suggest you consult your doctor for a real work up to find out what, if any, damage the overdose may have caused.

Several: While there are no FDA approved treatments, there are several meds that can be used. Paroxetine is one of these medications and other SSRI's can be used instead. Tricyclics like clomipramine have also been used. Topical analgesic creams are also sometimes used. While not medications, both sex therapy and CBT can be of help.
