    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.
