Your guys have been really helpful in the past, this is my question, I have a niece living with me, 20 years old, with anxiety,depression, OCD and anorexia, she is a very sweet and good girl and I would very much like her to be able to navigate the world with these chalenges, she is currently on 225mg of Effexier, her depression might be a bit better but her fear of germs, touching cleaning materials and refusing to meet people she knows hasnt improved, she is seeing a therapist, any suggestions about combining 2 medications or more help would be greatly appreciated, she refuses to go on proxac as it caused weight gain in the past.

Hello and I am so glad to see you are being proactive in helping your niece. I think her fear of not wanting to gain weight by adding more medication is connected to her anorexia.

I know many people take a combination of meds to treat their disorders.  I do not know which meds to suggest to you but hopefully her Pdoc will work with your niece on the medications.

Keep on posting as we are here to support you. :)
