Have any of you guys found a medication that works for your OCD? It has been exhausting and I am just trying to get others opinions on medication, since I know no one but myself who has OCD.

      I was on celexa for about 3 years and I recently have been adjusting to switching to prozac and I can already tell a difference it has made with my ocd and anxiety

      Zoloft helps me with my OCD and with depression.

      i recommend lexapro and deplin, lexapro is definitely stronger but deplin works well just especially to help slow the brain down at night

      I user zoloft with good effect in the beginning (over 20 years ago). I take Cymbalta now, and it works for both my OCD and depression.

      Hi! I started on lexapro and buspirone in January and within 10 days my OCD was gone unless triggered severely. And even then it’s very minimal.

      I’m not sure what you’ve tried or what type of OCD you have… but I like Celexa, and I have a friend who has also used that. I’ve also heard Zoloft is good. I have motor tics caused by OCD, and for awhile I was on medication for those (Tenex), but got off recently. I don’t have a ton of experience with medication for OCD though, I’m sorry.

        @spicynoodle thank you so much! I’m glad to hear that Celexa has been helpful, as thats one of the ones my psychiatrist was recommending. Thank you for your reply!
