PERFORMANCE ANXIETY: It sounds like you are having performance anxiety. The best treatment for this is low dose Inderal (propranolol) as long as you are not asthmatic or diabetic.) it calms down the Adrenalin rush that you get before a test so that you can focus. 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. It is non-addictive. ...Read more

Which ssri is the fastest in dealing with OCD and anxiety ( social and a kind of test or performance anxiety )?

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 more

My skin prick test had no reaction to wheat. However, i believe that gluten is the cause of my anxiety, OCD n gastro (self elim. Test). Who do I see?

My skin prick test had no reaction to wheat. However, i believe that gluten is the cause of my anxiety, OCD n gastro (self elim. Test). Who do I see?

Prick test: A skin test is not going to show the kind of food sensitivity to gluten that it sounds like you're talking about. Those responses are longer term (several days) than skin tests. You could try eliminating gluten from your diet on your own and see if this changes your anxiety symptoms any. You can also see a holistic or integrative medicine physician for help. http://www.holisticboard.org/. ...Read more

Are there doctors who can test to find out why I have ADHD and OCD and suggest non medication treatment options?

Sort of: There are no specific tests to either adhd or ocd; both are clinical diagnoses based on patient description of symptoms. However, there are non-medication treatments for both, especially for ocd. Look for a specialist in cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt). In urban areas, you probably can find centers that specialize in non-medication interventions for both adhd and ocd. ...Read more

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 more
