Re: ocd or not??

it sounds like your starting OCD, my dr said i have HOCD, but another said I don't, i know i do, and its hell, lexapro does not do ****, lexapro doesent help at all if you get put on it, most people have depression with OCD. but if you need me my screen name is vermilion pt 2

it does sound like OCD to me, the effexor dose may need to be upped, usual max is around 300, ask doc or a pharmacist
