All I know of for OCD are SSRIs, benzos, mood stabilizers and sometimes anti-psychotics.

I take Lamotrigine in the morning. It helps quiet triggering memories, slow mood changes and soften moods. I still get rage just not as often. It and therapy have helped me see my compulsions coming on. I can slow down and sometimes not do them. I still need to try an SSRI to see if it will calm my obsessions.
