Hi,

I suffered once from low bloodsugar and feel of fainting so I stuck in a traffic jam and was worried that I will pass out in the street especially when I didnt have my phone on me to call somebody!! So after that I started avoiding traffic jams!! Anyway, I saw a psychiatrist and he prescribed me Danxit and Celepra 20 mg I took them for about 2 years and left Celepra 6 months ago and stayed on deanxit on 1 a day!!!

After quitting celepra specifically after 1 month! I started having bad thoughts such as slaping my brother or telling somebody old to shut up etc... Never did them of course!

The thoughts didnt bother me and they were not so frequent until I read about OCD and I freaked out and started having them more frequently!!

Could this be a side effect of deanxit? I took OCD test and it was negative because I dont have any other symptoms of OCD apart from these thoughts.

Please note that I moved recently to the US
Im still unemployed and living in a great emptiness

Welcome to e health forum.

It is more likely that you are feeling overwhelmed by anxiety, due to the stress of being unemployed and other personal problems.

This is a very common issue and you should not worry about having severe psychiatric issues .


But, it would still be recommended that you consult your doctor and seek counselling to manage your stress and anxiety.
