Anybody had success with escitalopram for ocd ?


Recommended Posts

I have been taking 30 mg escitalopram for several years now. I don't have OCD, but I've got GAD with obsessive tendencies and depressive episodes. I believe that the escitalopram has helped to reduce the depth and frequency of my depressive episodes, but unfortunately hasn't really made a dent in my obsessive thoughts.

That's interesting because I find that 30mg (which is I've the recommended max) works well for my TR OCD. But that's mainly because it makes me consistently pretty depressed and very anhedonic, and my OCD is only triggered when I'm feeling better/relatively OK. 

I'm on 25mg and that appears to be my sweet spot. Good but not great for OCD, and doesn't exacerbate my depression too much.
