Clozapine induced ocd ! alternatives?

Recommended Posts

It seems like my ocd is worsening on clozapine and studies[1] agree ocd flares up in some patients on clozapine. Its hard to stop a med which had you stable for 6 years. But my ocd is very bad now.

Is there any other antipsychotic as powerful as clozapine which i can try ?

I'm on a phone and can't see your meds. Do you or have you thought of trying an antidepressant that works for OCD? Therapy too. I take clozapine too and have bad OCD but it existed before the clozapine. Never heard of it making OCD worst. If your stable on clozapine, I'd be very careful about changing antipsychotics.
