Discussions that mention prozac

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) board


Hi,

I have been lurking on this board for quite a while now. I have a 9-year-old son who was diagnosed with OCD 10 months ago. Jeniffer, I can relate to much of what you are going through. My son is also obsessed with germs and is a compulsive washer. He is on Prozac and sees his therapist weekly. He is much improved from where he was last spring, but we still see the ups and downs in his behavior - lately more downs than ups. I understand completely about the excessive use of hand soap, towels, and clothes! Reading this board has been very helpful and reassuring to me. At least I know that we are not alone in this journey!
