    I tried Lexapro but it was for depression and anxiety. My issue was that I also have bipolar disorder and it sent me into a manic episode. I plan on asking my doctor if I can start Prozac for my OCD.

    No, I’m on Lexapro for anxiety. I did go on antidepressants for ocd a couple of years ago. The best one for me it seemed was Prozac. I felt like I could focus more and I did things without feeling like giving up. I had to get off of it though because it made my heart race at one point.
