I believe only certain anxiolytics would allow you to respond depending on your OCD symptoms. Actually anxiety is the most common symptom of OCD. Thus reduce the anxiety, reduce the obsessions and compulsions. Please do not be afraid or embarrassed to talk to your doctor. There may be other meds that he will need to prescribe which may include antidepressants. Also you may need to attend counseling to help you with your symptoms. Sincerely, searchin

The reason I don't want to go into details about my OCD with my doctor: I have no mental health care insurance, and a very limited income. If my doctor wants me to go to a psychiatrist for treatment, instead of prescribing something himself, I'd be up a creek without a paddle. I was hoping anti-anxiety medication will take the edge off my symptoms for now.
