Hiya and welcome. If you have just started it then it will take a while to work. My son was on this and he said it worked well for him. The 3 weeks is to assess if its working I suspect.

OCD is awful, you have my sympathies. What are the doctors like in Kuwait? I hope you can get the help you need.

My son swore that the meds helped him and he is now functioning normally. I hope that gives you hope.

for me medication relieves the symptoms of my depression, i still need daily routine of work and socialisation to impact life in a positive way, if i rely on my medication , i will never live a quality life.
