Hi Evi,

I’m on fluoxetine at the moment, however I’d say it’s different from person to person. What works for one person may not work for the other. You’re best off taking your doctor’s/therapist’s advice. It’s trial and error 

Do u think fluoxetine helped u? do u find a difference on your mind status?

Are you situataed in the UK? If you're in England then you can get CBT by contacting your local IAPT service, or elsewhere in the UK via your GP.

If you decide to go privately, just make sure they are BABPC accedited. You might find  this   page useful.

 Not aware that this drug has any effect upon OCD. GPs should have a book on their desks indicating drugs suitable for all recognised medical conditions. In the U.K. NICE, the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence, recommends treatment for OCD based on scientific evidence. The treatments recommended are CBT for OCD and the use of a class of drugs known as SSRIs, fluoxetine is a medicine in this category. Rarely for psychological treatments for mental disorders, CBT for OCD is the sole psychological treatment recommended for OCD. A good account of CBT can be found on this website.

Medication is effective about 40 to 60% of the time & 50% of the time people give up due to side effects (IocdF). 
You can look up what’s effective on the forum or thus website.
