> This is a longshot I suspect, but I had similar problems when on risperdal, also repetitive counting and spelling words over and over, I learned rare instances in which risperdal can worsen symptoms of OCD, I have the same problem with seroquel (new atypical antipsychotic) above a certain dose.

The counting is a really common OCD symptom.

I'd give Klonopin a try, since SSRIs haven't been helping with this symptom. But definitely get a 2nd neuro opinion!

As far as I know, there is no evidence that ECT works at all for OCD, BTW. Anyone have more info about this? (I've only heard of it being used successfully for depression (not atypical depression though), acute mania, and catatonia.)
