  1. Hi, My son used to have mild OCD. But last summer, his OCD increased significantly. Dr. T found he had PANDAS and prescribed him with various kinds of antibiotics, which, unfortunately, made his OCD worse. Later, the Cunningham test showed he had autoimmune disorder and was prescribed with Prendisone, which even made his OCD much worse. So we stopped all these medicine. And later, with increased probiotics, his OCD was relieved. Although it was still significant, it was within a tolerable level. Last week without a clue again (or maybe due to increased social anxiety in school), his OCD increased back to the high level like that in summer. So his school psychiatrist wanted to increase his medicine for OCD because he has been very late for school due to OCD during morning routine. His current medicine for OCD is zoloft 200mg. He is also taking zyprexa for his paranoia. Personally, we do not want to add any medicine. He has been seeing Dr. Greenblatt, an integrative psychiatrist, who give him several supplements. His paranoia has been reduced to minimal and zyprexa reduced from 30mg to 10mg in two years since he started taking the supplements. A recent Kryptopyrrole test indicated he had elevated pyroluria and Dr. Greenblatt has just prescribed him with Zinc and Vit B6, hopefully to reduce his anxiety. We would like to see how the new supplements work before changing his medicine. Anyway, his school psychiatrist proposed three options for us to consider for treating his OCD 1. to increase zyprexa from 10mg to 15mg in order to boost up the effect of zoloft. 2. to add another SSRI, such as Prozac, on top of 200mg zoloft 3. to add another tricyclic , such as Anafranil, on top of 200mg zoloft. Any feedback for the medicine options and any suggestion relating to what happened to my son's OCD are greatly appreciated Thanks for your time Louisa
