I am oversensitive person, how to cope?

I have OCD, major depression and of course paranoid sz. I react to everything over the edge. Not sure what kind of antidepressant or medication to use.


Luvox is working for my severe OCD. I believe it’s the first thing they go to for OCD.

Im on escitalopram, i have been on it for 2 months, its better than something. I think i need an SNRI

Yeah I think those can treat OCD too. I think you just have to try different SSRIs or SNRIs until you find one that works for you. Same thing as SZ with APs.

Also for OCD there is therapy such as ERP.

I have severe OCD, and the only thing that has helped has been 100mg of prozac and therapy. CBT has surprisingly helped a lot; just changing how I think about things into a more positive tone.
