I've heard of docs adding in BuSpar/"atypical" antipsychotics to help with apathy. Having taken both, I find that kind of move surprising, but hey--maybe it helps some people.
OCD can be helped with uppers (amphetamines..maybe ritalin, too?) and downers (benzos). Some people also report benefit from Ultram (tramadol, a weird opiate agonist with effexor-ish qualities built in). So..what is it the Prozac does for you? If its energizing, can you up the Ritalin or WB? If its anti-OCD, would your doc be willing to try a tranquilizer?

Have you ever tried an MAOI? Or Anafranil?
