I suppose, just suppose, that it can if the main problem to target is OCD. But I don't know if tripthopan is first choise suplement for this disturb. Did you read something about tripthophan and OCD ?
Since I'm not very expertized on triptophan you might ask to Larry Hoover or DSCH on this board ...

It's possibile but maybe they have different disturbs to target. I can figure out that can help almost immediately anxiety and some kind of depression but I'm not sure about OCD and related issues.
