MaleficiaHollow asked 3 years ago

Okay my doctor has decided to put me on Edronax for my OCD considering Lexapro started to make my symptoms worse, I just wanted to know if anyone else has used Edronax for OCD and how it worked, when I looked it up all I got was that its used for other mental interests but nothing on the it being used for OCD, so if anyone can help that would be great, oh and also if anyone tell me about how it effects pregnancy that would be great also thanks.

The only one I could find had someone taking it with the Brazilian version of Celexa, with excellent results.

Re: Edronax and OCD
Hi, Maleficia!
 
Your question has probably already been answered by now.  Just in case you’re still interested in
learning the risks of Edronax/reboxetine during PREGNANCY…
 
(1)  Strattera/atomoxetine and Edronax/reboxetine are both NRIs and very alike.
     Strattera pregnancy warnings would no doubt apply to Edronax also.
     Edronax isn’t used in the USA, so I can’t get any “patient information” sheet on it.
 
(2)  (from RxList):  “STRATTERA should not be used during pregnancy unless the potential benefit
     justifies the potential risk to the fetus.”
 
(3)  To read everything the RxList says about Strattera & pregnancy, go to:
     http://www.rxlist.com/cgi/generic3/strattera_wcp.htm  
 
Hope this helps.
 
Adieu
