I’m a lip picker. Started about 20-yrs-ago. At first I thought it was just dry lips, but it definitely is some type of anxiety and OCD issue. I had issues with depression, anxiety, and even eating disorders, (worse in my twenties). I’ve had a lot of individual and group counseling that has been extremely helpful, but still can’t seem to shake the lip picking. I’ve stopped other bad coping habits like nail biting, bulimia, and smoking successfully. Lexapro and counseling has helped tremendously with the depression. Anxiety is still an issue, but not severe. I find exercise and meditation helps manage anxiety quite a bit. However, Sometimes I think there may be more underlying anxiety than I really perceive, because I find I lip pick during stress. Though I pick when concentrating on something too. I was reading something about gaba receptor issues in the brain causing obsessive compulsive issues. Namenda may help with this. Does anyone have any feedback regarding their experience with meds?
