Re: LUVOX or any other med for OCD: experiences wanted Janelle

In reply to LUVOX or any other med for OCD: experiences wanted, posted by Janelle on November 22, 2003, at 18:46:05

I had a fair amount of luck with Luvox. It helped me control the symptoms to the point that I could use CBT to bring the OCD pretty much under control. Once I did, I was able to discontinue the Luvox. I still have flareups from time to time but find them tolerable. The book Stavros mentioned "Stop Obsessing" is the one I liked best, although many prefer "Brain Lock". CBT has a pretty good success rate with OCD, but I found it worked better when the anxiety was enough under control to concentrate.

I don't know that Luvox has any more effect on OCD than the other SSRI's though. It was just the first to seek FDA approval for that rather than depression.
