What Medicine has Worked for you for OCD

So I have OCD and I want to finally go get help. Have had it for years but it is pretty much taking over my life so need help. I obsess over my health, my dogs health, everyones health!! I also do the repeat thing. I will feel my teeth with my tongue all day long looking for cavities!! I have had 6 root canals so thats what started that routine!! If I think I found a cavity then it starts a panic attack. Its just awful. Hate being like this. What meds have helped you the most with OCD? Thanks everyone

Re: What Medicine has Worked for you for OCD

Hello! I know how you feel about the health thing. I am constantly making sure I am breathing. (yes I know how absurd it sounds) I have never tried medication have you? I am in CBT right now. I just discovered a supplement called "Inositol" that sounds great for people with panic disorder and OCD (which is what I'm diagnosed with.) Thinking about giving it a try.

Re: What Medicine has Worked for you for OCD

I have had OCD for years and I have been on so many different medications!

I will name a few and how they made me feel.

Prozac - made me feel like I was always in a daze and very tired, didn't really help my OCD much.

Zoloft - didn't help much with my OCD, but was only on it for a short while.

Lexapro - worked very well, but made me gain a lot of weight!!!

Luvox CR - Worked GREAT, but is extremely expensive if you do not have insurance

Celexa - this is what I am currently taking and it works pretty well

Abilify - I am also currently taking this with the Celexa. It is supposed to make any meds you're taking stronger. Works very well

I hope I have been of some help, I know how hard having OCD can be... but believe me the medication makes it a lot more bearable!
