It knocks out the jitters very well. It is used a lot for musicians who have performance anxiety prior to a concert. Ask your psychiatrist about it.

Which ssri is the fastest in dealing with OCD and anxiety ( social and a kind of test or performance anxiety )?
SSRI's : In terms of generalized worry, certainly lexapro's data shows that it starts working in the first week. The same cannot be said of the other antidepressants in terms of generalized anxiety. If you need something quickly for performance anxiety then a brief benzodiazepine or the use of a beta blocker can be of help. Ocd takes up to 12 weeks for maximum benefit no matter which agent you use. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

In urban areas, you probably can find centers that specialize in non-medication interventions for both adhd and ocd. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
18yo f diagnosis bilateral talus OCD 5yr ago. Nonopp tx, 2 excision&curettage, 2 bone graphs, are there tests to say why it doesn't work?/ what do I do now?
Difficult: This is a tough problem to treat (there are no tests that i know of - it's just a tough problem to treat) and ultimately it may come down to trying to live/deal with the pain as much as possible vs more drastic surgery such as an ankle fusion. Ankle replacement surgery could be an option as well. Discuss further surgical treatment with your doctor and consider a 2nd or 3rd opinion. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
