Does flupenthixol work for ocd ?
did some quick googling, and apparently it’s not unheard of for being prescribed for treatment resistant OCD but it doesn’t seem to help much.
OCD can occur due to oxidative stress. Antioxidants like NAC, green tea, omega 3 etc can help. A low thyroid activity can also contribute to OCD.
Max doses of SSRI are used for OCD
Well my pdoc said low dose flupenthixol or risperidone are sometimes used for ocd.
I have read about risperidone which is atypical antipsychotics helping ocd in studies. But i have never read that flupenthixol which is typical antipsychotic helping ocd.
Fluphentixol can be used as an antidepressant in lower doses
