Hi Woolav.

I would have to agree that Prozac is not the ideal drug to combat anxiety in the absence of depression. It is probably the worst choice among the SSRIs for an anxiety disorder. However, if the anxiety is a component of the depression, they both tend resolve simultaneously. I imagine this is also true of OCD.

You might want to consider going with Effexor if an anxiety disorder is manifest.

How is your depression at the moment?
