Trish - You should be able to go off the Celexa after two weeks. Much of the increase in OCD symptoms should have begun to resolve by then. In my opinion, I have seen better results with Anaranil™ (clomipramine) than Celexa™ (citalopram) in OCD, so far. I have also seen some people respond to Celexa, but usually with a number of other meds (usually for comorbid disorders like depression, anxiety, or psychotic features with the OCD).

There is still room to raise the Anafranil, but the symptoms of OCD can be stubborn and take a long time to resolve significantly. I have seen if take 3 to 6 months to get good results from Anafranil, but I believe that it can take that long with SSRIs, as well.

Hang in there and keep us posted on your progress. Good luck - Cam
