Which ones have you tried?

I have tried sertraline, had excessive bleeding. Mirtazapine, caused pancreatitis. Now one week into citalopram. Watch this space, so far so good(ish).

Yeah Sertraline just floored me. If you look on NICE BNF, Fluvoxamine is the most popular SSRI for OCD. I have also read multiple reviews that when Risperidone is added to an SSRI it can can be as effective or even better than Clomipramine, even states so on Wikipedia

That being said if your getting good results with Citalopram, stick with it

Thanks. Hard to say if citalopram working because only been a week. No adverse effects yet thought. Will keep in mind what you’ve said if all else fails.

Yeah, the dreaded 12 week trial! I hope it stays that way and you get positive results

That’s the trouble. You have to wait all that time and then sometimes doesn’t work and you have to start all over again.
