Some pdocs suggest risperidone for ocd augmentation with SSRI.

Anybody have experience with it ? Does it help ocd ? Any studies ?

My pdoc says low dose risperidone can help ocd. I’m suffering clozapine induced ocd already.

I’m able to tolerate SSRIs after reducing my clozapine. My pdoc wants me to further reduce my clozapine to improve ocd and add risperidone for positive symptoms.

i took risperidone at 0.5-0.75 mg with zoloft and later effexor for quite a while. i found it effective for racing thoughts, intrusive thoughts and general calming. i also could take an additional .25 mg if it was a particularly anxious/obsessive day, which worked for me. i had to go off of it because of lactation, and without it effexor wasn't enough to control my symptoms anymore. i'm on clomipramine now which is pretty good.

I've never taken it, but I've heard it works well for many. Be careful of hyperprolactinemia as has been mentioned.

Risperidone+SSRI was great for my OCD.

Considering asking for it again...
