>I'm not surprised at all. It's not like anyone can say with great confidence how any AD achieves (or doesn't achieve) the effects it does or why people exhibit such idiosyncratic responses to them.

I'm just skeptical. If you look at the pathology of OCD, you'll find serotogenic ADs, namely SSRIs are the frontline treatment for the disorder because the PFC is usually deficient in serotonin.

Wellbutrin doesn't raise serotonin at all. Its only an NDRI.

How long have you been taking it?

You've tried all the ADs?
