I've never been dx'd with OCD but as far as rumination, when going through a depressed episode I tend to ruminate excessively. Can't get a thought out of my head, dwelling on past events, excessive worry about the future. I can't say that Remeron has helped with any of that since I'm not actively 'depressed', however it's always a moment-to-moment challenge to overcome a tendency to worry and obsess about bad things happening. I honestly don't know if that's a personality quirk, OCD, or just a normal reaction to an out of balance, screwed up world. I seem to remember that Zoloft helped alot with the worrying, but on Zoloft I didn't give much of a hoot about anything, which was why I wanted off of it.
