I have been suffering with OCD since I was 12 years old. From age 12 to 23 it was an extreme case. I finally found a psychiatrist who diagnosed me with adhd believing this was the underlying disorder I was put on Adderal and for the first time in my life I had felt relief from my severe symptoms. I had been on 75 mg per day for a few years and then up to 120 mg per day for the last year. My question is why does my OCD seem to learn how to override my meds after a certain length of time and what can I do about it? If my OCD gets as powerful as it was for so many years I feel I'd be better off dead.
