I keep reading about high doses (12-18g per day. Yes, grams) being used to treat OCD.


This is supposedly due to some effect on serotonin.


Has anyone noticed a changed in tics from Inositol?


Or libido? I know SSRIs can kill libido so I'm worried about the serotonin effect. That being said, I've also heard about people using Inositol to treat PSSD (post SSRI sexual dysfunction).

that high dose of Inositol is only supposed to be used in OCD crisis and short term


using high doses longterm can start having a negative effect.


Optimum regular daily dose is usually around 1gm


as it is a B vitamin, it likely does have a positive effect on tics too, but I have not heard of it being specifically suggested to reduce tics,


according to this site there is no real data on libido, tho some sites say a slight damping but nothing like with SSRIs http://www.raysahelian.com/inositol.html
