Ocd is a chemical imbalance in the brain. Ssri's are used to manage the symptoms of ocd. What ssri to use and how much are required are decisions best left up to your psychiatrist.

Not sure what ssri you are taking or how much, but usually severe OCD require high doses along with psychotherapy. Discuss with your doctor.
