I've had O.C.D. most of my life, & did nothing about it. Until it ruined my relationship with friends and family. I've been taking Inositol for only 3 days, 1 gram a day. I've notice significant results. My mind is at rest. I love it, and will never go back to that lifestyle again. Life is so much better.

I began taking this supplement in hopes of reducing my OCD symptoms. I have noticed a reduction, so far, in my obsessive thoughts (rumination), desire to check things over in my head, desire to double check locks, and general panic about doing things wrong. I haven't noticed a significant reduction in picking at my cuticles, but I have become more aware of it. My symptoms aren't gone, just ... Show Full Comment

all i'm going to say is research the ocd study. the abstract says the pateints were put on 18g of inositol a day, which is 18,000 mg.! people here are reporting 'results' (or no results)and taking 500 to 1000 mg a day, the latter is 1/18 what the clinical study used! i plan to find a bulk source because 18 grams a day will be very expensive. most caps are only 1000 or 500 mg's., s, ...

I began taking inositol for ocd and anxiety and even at the fairly low dose of 1.5g, it was quite helpful. The problem is that 3 years ago I was diagnosed with transverse myelitis and have a rather large m.s. type lesion on my spinal cord. It was an awful and very scary experience which caused some residual nerve damage. My neurologist has been watching me closely as sometimes T.M. is the firs ... Show Full Comment

Comment:
I started taking this to help me with my life time of Body Focused Repetitive Disorder (picking at my cuticles and nail biting).I have been really surprised by the results and my need/desire to pick at my fingers has almost disappeared. In fact, this is the first review I have EVER written on line, but I have found so much benefit from it I hope it helps someone else.
