In Reply to: anyone here take anti-depressants (ssri's) for your ocd? posted by ryan on May 10, 2002:
I take Serzone (800 mg per day) and it completely stops the OCD. I have tried repeatedly (no pun intended) to stop meds after being on them several years and, after about 5-6 months, the OCD returns with a vengeance. It is better to stay on the meds. I know Serzone has a "warning" about possible liver damage but, hey, alcohol can do the same, so I don't sweat it. And besides, Serzone is the only SSRI drug that lets me be 100% sexually (you know what I mean). The other drugs kill the sex drive. Be good and take your meds.
