Finding the right medications for Obsessive Compulsive Disorder should be recommended by your doctor. I have been through 3 different types of medications to find the right one. The side effects are different from each medication.

Side Effects from certain medications can include:

  • decreased sexual desire or ability
  • diarrhea
  • dizziness
  • drowsiness
  • dry mouth
  • headache
  • heartburn
  • increased sweating
  • loss of appetite
  • nausea
  • nervousness
  • sleep disturbance
  • tremor (shakiness)

Contact your doctor if you experience these side effects and they are severe or bothersome. Your pharmacist may be able to advise you on managing side effects.
