Question Best Drug working with Ritalin for OCD and Anger?

Hi,

39 years old, male. About 20 years suffering OCD; classic hygiene issues.. I have tried so many antidepressants. I have nt been using any since 3 years...

I was diagnosed as an ADHD 2 months ago.(I knew I have ADHD for a long time, but I didnt dare to go a shirink, because I have bad memories with them) First month was OK, 10mg x 2:not much side effects, I thought drug is also good for my OCD.

Second month doctor prescribed 10mg x 3 and off for Sundays . Still happy with the drug but I feel OCD comes back and I get temper very easily, specially to my loved ones..

My next appointment with doctor is next month and she lives very far away from where I live... So, would anyone offer me light drug working with Ritalin for OCD and Anger management?

Cheers

Does your OCD come back on Sundays when you are off meds or whenever it wants to?

No, Sundays are usual, I dont work, I dont need the drug that much on this day(at least I can trick myself that way)
OCD is all day but strongly comes back specially at the evenings when the drug wears off.
I get angry anytime when things dont go the way I want or how I plan...
Anger could be the side effect of the drug., or maybe the dosage... And maybe I should ask for treatment for OCD to my doctor...

Anyone have an experience Ritalin-Antidepressant combination?

I dont have experience with ritalin and an antidepressant but I do have experience with adderall and an antidepressant. I also dont have ocd but I can always tell when the adderall wears off.
