Hello. I was wondering what meds are best for ocd. I see doctor Tuesday and want to tell him my concerns. I count steps a lot when I walk.. Always like to do something to a certain number. I look for a certain colour of something when I walk out of a room. I will explain this to doctor but wondered if there are any ideas on best meds. Thanks

i think SSRI's are the usual choice (looking at NHS and OCDUK sites). What is best depends on you and what effect the specific med has on you.

I have just started Paxil cr a week ago for anxiety and depression. Not sure if there is another safe med to take with it for ocd
