Comment:
Have taken intermittently for over 30 years. Always works superbly but takes about 8 weeks to be effective and side effects can be quite brutal. But well worth the wait.

Comment:
within days I no longer check things all the time like if my doors are locked, if my wallet is in my purse, repeatedly checking my work at the office 5-6 times over and over again. It is effective on half the starting dose for me and I am 105 lbs.

Comment:
A much more effective drug for OCD than Zoloft or Luvox. Also great for minor aches and pains associated with depression.
