Hey everyone, I recently have been put on a low dose of Prozac for my potential OCD (potential because I have not been to a psychologist, but the doctor perscribed it because he believes its bad enough to be classified as one). Basically I pull out my eyebrows, and eye lashes....constantly. Its worse when I am stress, but being in the final stretch of university, and working at the same time, stress is a constant.

I know that it takes 4-6 weeks sometimes for the drugs to kick in, but since being on them, it seems that its worse than ever. Currently I have no eye brows left, but am not touching my eye lashes which is good I guess.

I was just wondering what other people's experiences have been with this type of OCD and/or treatment. I have tried behavioural changes, trying to redirect the anxiety but so far, nothing has helped. Just looking for some advice. Its been going on for 6 years, and its time I get this under control.
