  • Effectiveness
    None (for obsessive-compulsive disorder)
  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for depressed mood)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 150 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I was originally prescribed Prozac which I felt did wonders for me. I had excessive energy, lost a lot of weight but was jittery so my doctor (and eventually consultant) prescribed Escitalopram, eventually Sertraline. I find that I still have OCD and this has not decreased in any shape or form. My depression seems to be under control at the moment but I have attempted suicide twice over the last month.
