The SSRIs are probably first line choices for OCD. If the OCD is primarily just on specific activities though, that might respond well to counseling, psychotherapy, and behavioral control changes.

My doctor has talked to me about how they treat anorexia in hospital residency. Some of the more common meds they use are the antidepressant remeron, the antipsychotic zyprexa, and the mood stabilizer depakote, often two of them in combination. They could also help with the OCD. It would be nice to get it all treated with talk therapy though before going to medications. But if meds are needed, these are some ideas.
