Unstoppable thoughts

I experience unwanted, unstoppable thoughts continuously. It's like my mind is at war. Specially when I listen to music, the music keeps playing in my head for days. This has been happening since my teenage years. I even had a blackout in my exam once due to these thought. I have had a few sleepless nights. Fear about death, money has always been there. I avoid sitting in groups and even holding a cup of coffee as I feel my hands while shake and people will think I am a psycho. Can't I have a clear mind. I take aplrax 0.25 sometimes and it helps but can't I have something which keeps me at a clear state all the time.

You are suffering from ocd spectrum disorder. You need medicines. Don't take alprax as and when required. Go for permanent solution. Visit a psychiatrist.  Have faith on meds and your therapist.

As far as I have understood the issues your are dealing with is from a longer duration. The medication that you are on is it prescribed by someone?. From your symptoms is indicative that your problem falls under the anxiety spectrum for a specific diagnosis and treatment it would be advised that you seek help of a mental health professional without delay.
