Thanks for the reply.

I’m wondering if it’ll be ok to start an OCD medication for the stimulants.

As i said, the ocd stayed even after stopping with
the Ritalin (and his effect).
Maybe it was close to psychosis.
It was an existential ocd.
I dont want to start a permanent treat for the OCD (I’m afraid of permanent brain change for negative because of the stimulants.)
I know that this is a question for a psychiatrist
but its not that easy for me to trust, even a psychiatrist, And I’m asking for your opinion.

I must say that i felt an OCD (close to anxiety) and mood disorder. But its self diagnosed, and i lived with that.
