Anafranil


I have serious obsession issue and found that anafranil is best drug for obsessions. I have to use it but I'm scared of serious side effect. Tooth breakage etc.

Is anafranil too dangerous to use?

I've used Adrafinil for tiredness. It does work, not that well for concentration but it could be b/c I'm used to being on stimulants. Heard of something called Fladrafinil?

Fluoxetine 20mg 2009-2011, (Paroxetine 20mg 2012-2014) Effexor XR short time. Viibryd 2014-2015, Back on Paxil CR 25mg, Jan-July 2015.

Suboxone 2mg Effexor XR 150mg early 2016. Now 2016-2017: Paxil 20mg, Ativan, Lyrica, Adderall, Ambien CR.

I have a friend who obsessively pulls out her hair. She's been on & off Anafranil for the last 30 years. Last year she tried it again, and decided to give it up due to side effects. For her, the cure was worse than the disease.

She decided that she'd prefer to wear a wig (which I would never have guessed wasn't her real hair) instead of taking Anafranil.

She hasn't done any hair pulling since October and yesterday she finally showed me her real hair. I told her I was really proud of her and she credits having a me as such an understanding friend for her success in not tearing her hair out.

I have terrible OCD and tried 3 times to take Anafranil. This med gave me terrible side effects including instant insomnia, brain zaps, and irritability. But remember that every drug effects people differently. I have tried other drugs of the same class like trimiprimine that didn't cause all that bad side effects.

And wet she rose from the lake, and fast and fleet went she
One half the form of a maiden fair with a jet black mare's body

And loud, long and shrill he blew til his steed was by his side
High overhead the grey hawk flew and swiftly did he ride
Saying "Course well, my brindled hound, and fetch me the jet black mare
Stoop and strike, my good grey hawk, and bring me the maiden fair"

My issue is I am not sure of anything. For example I know this is wrong but my brain feels like this is true.

Yes SSRI like Paxil is good for it but I'm still not sure of anything. I just forget it. My brain still feels like this is true. I don't even trust my feelings.

For example, I loved the girl then my brain feels like I dont love the girl. But I know I still love her.

My feelings are changing a lot.
