It has helped my OCD very much especially at the 225mg/day dosage. I would recommend to first-time users to start with 50mg/day and gradually build up the dosage or your mouth will feel as dry as sand. Overall if you don't mind the weight gain it is VERY effective for OCD and it it also very affordable.

I had a severe OCD attack come on, and was hospitalized for a month. My doctor started me on this drug after the first week, and once it kicked in, it worked wonders. The side effects are not bad, and it helps control the unwanted thoughts.

After 4 years of different meds for severe ocd, including literally pulling out my hair, this medicine worked like a charm and had no side effects. I wish it were prescribed more; my dr. said that it was an 'older'med and some of the newer docs didn't know about it. Wow, is that scary or what? Has not effected my ability to achieve orgasm.

My doctor put me on 100MG of this drug and after taking one dose I had so many severe side effects I almost went to the hosptial. I had tremors, pounding heartbeat, sweating, I was so dizzy I couldn't stand, severe nausea, constipation, insomnia, loss of appetitate, numbness in my hands and feet, tired, no energy. I was so hopefull that this med would help my OCD. I am now on a different med.
