Hi Tom,

She should keep taking her current medication for three more weeks minimum to give the drugs the chance to work properly. Fluoxetine (Prozac) is supposed to be good for OCD, but your wife would need to be on quite a high dose to notice a reduction in the symptoms that she displays, maybe 60mg. I'm sure that her doctor will up the dose once your wife has become used to the medication, just give it a chance.

As for Effexor I'm not sure if its good for OCD or not.

Good Luck, hope things work out for you,
Regards Jane.

> My wife has the Obsessive bit and we have just found out that her sister in England is on effexor for depression. My wife is currently on Busperone, Risperidone and Fluoxetine,but it doesn't seem to be doing much good (she's been on it for 3 weeks or so now). Can effexor be used to treat OCD?(I understand it is similar to the combination she is on). And is there a likely genetic link?
> Thanks in advance. Tom.
