    I wouldn't call what I had OCD exactly, but it was a form of depression in which, as stress levels rose, my irritability increased. When I found mysel thinking all negative thoughts, many of them angry thoughts, I knew it was time for another round of clonidine. It really helps. and helps me deal with stress effectively and productively, instead of just sitting and stewing. I'd say it is ... Show Full Comment

    I take this med for OCD and depression. At first I felt great! I could walk through my house and not feel the need to clean it from ceiling to floor everyday. The med has helped somewhat with my counting obsession. The problems that I am having now are insomnia (which Ambien is helping with), very vivid dreams (I even hit my husband in my sleep!) and dry mouth. I plan to continue taking this med b ...

    I suffered many years with obsessive thoughts and depression and tried several meds before my Dr. prescribed fluvoxamine. This medication has dramatically improved the quality of my life. I cannot say enough good things about it! I have been taking it for almost 10 years and the only long lasting effect has been dry mouth, which simply makes me drink more water! I love this medication and I am so ... Show Full Comment

    Comment:
    This does help with OCD. I do not ruminate or obsess persistently about the same annoying distracting and useless thoughts. It also helps with my anxiety and a little with ADD. Mainly, it makes me a little less anxious, so I don't worry (obsess) as much, and my attention is a little better (I don't forget my keys or wallet as much) b/c again, I am less anxious. But I need more, so I am t ... Show Full Comment
