OCD treatment: Both Anafranil & Prozac are FDA approved for the treatment of Obsessive Compulsive Disorder. Since they have both been effective for you, taking one that is causing you fewer side effects makes sense. Take care.

Maybe: For the most part, Prozac (fluoxetine) is easier to tolerate than Anafranil and has fewer side effects. However it is also not as powerful in its effects on serotonin. So you may need higher doses for ocd than for other illnesses like depression or anxiety.
