> Did the inositol help you with your OCD? If so, how much?
>
> Did you do behavior therapy in addition to taking the inositol?
>
> How many weeks did you try 18 grams/day of inositol (I've read it takes 6 weeks or more before you see benefits)?
>
> Did the side effect of diarrhea go away after awhile, and if so how long?
>
> Did you start out at a lower dosage and build up to the 18 grams over a period of weeks (to minimize the side effects)?
>
> Did you notice any other side effects?
>
> Based on your experience, would you recommend that someone give inositol a try?

> I personally have been taking Inositol for about 3 weeks now. Currently at 9 grams/day, working up the 18. Haven't noticed any real benefit yet. However everything I have read says it is too early. Just trying to get info from others who have actually tried it to see if they recommend trying it, and how long it took to see results.
