Wed, Jul 8 4:49pm · Depression and Anxiety at an older age in Depression & Anxiety

Hi, I am 71 and I have been suffering with OCD and intrusive thoughts with depression for a LONG time. I have taken such drugs as cymbalta, Abilify, Zoloft, Prozac, Paxil, Xanax and others. I was wondering what success the group has had with any of these drugs. Also I would be interested if anyone has tried Ketamine or TCS, especially for the OCD

Hi, I am a 70 year old male, I have been struggling with OCD, Depression, and anxiety off and on for many years. The tough thing with my issues is that OCD and Depression seem to be like kissing cousins. they seem to have an effect on each other. I have seen quite a few CBT therapists as well as Psychiatrists. The meds I have been include Prozac, cymbalta, Zoloft, Paxil, and Xanax. I also suffer from various fears as well. It seems as I get older, these issues have become more intense at times.I would be curious if anyone has suffered from these 3 issues for a long time, and if anyone has found success from any specific treatment they have had Take Care.

@merpreb Hi thanks for writing to me. As you said I am new to this bulletin board. I am 70 and I have had OCD and depression off and on since I was about 12 years of age. I have been to many Psychopharmacologists as well as talk therapy. I have been on several medications such as Prozac, Zoloft, Celexia and Cymbolta. Unfortunately some of the medications above worked for the time being anywhere from a few months to even several years. I currently am on Zoloft and Cymbolta and I see a therapist on a somewhat of a weekly basis. I am semi retired, I ended up going back to work due to being very bored being fully retired. I am wondering if a doctor or medical professional gave you the go ahead for cannabis oil. Have you suffered with your ailments for a long time? I am trying to do CBT with the therapist. Hope to hear from you soon. take care. Herb
