Prozac and best dose for OCD????

What dose of prozac did you find works best for OCD.

Is 60mg and 80mg a big difference in anti-ocd effect or not

I find the sexual side effects mild at 40mg. but horrible at 60mg.

Re: Prozac and best dose for OCD????

I didn't do well on Prozac it made me hallucinate and that was at 30mg. It also didn't help much with my OCD. I didn't do well with Paxil either. The doctor now has me on Celexa and I seem to handle that ok for now at least. Everyone reacts differently to different medications. I also take Omega 3 which you can get at your local health store. It's suppose to help ease depression and stabilise moods. I find it helps a little bit but it's not a silver bullet and might not work for all.
