 5  OCD Intrusive unwanted thoughts Initially had problems with restless leg syndrome and feeling like I couldn't sit still and be comfortable. This went away and may have been helped had I gradually worked my dosage up. I am 39 years old and have had OCD since my early teens. The most unsettling part of my OCD was the intrusive unwanted thoughts. This drug has been a miracle for me since the thoughts are 99.9% gone now. My brilliant psychiatrist tried this with me and it has truly changed my life. M 39 7 years

ORAP  (PIMOZIDE):  This medication is used to reduce uncontrolled movements (motor tics) or outbursts of words/sounds (vocal tics) caused by Tourette syndrome. Pimozide is a medication that works by decreasing the activity of a natural substance (dopamine) in the brain. Pimozide should not be used for mild symptoms. It should only be used if symptoms cause severe problems in everyday life and other medicines or treatments have not been effective.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
