Multiple: Multiple other ssri's such as Celexa and zoloft (sertraline) can also be used in ocd. These can be augmented with antipsychotics and benzodiazepines as well. http://tinyurl.com/ozsdsbz some who do not respond to these may respond to augmentation with low-dose ondansetron. http://tinyurl.com/nnj59r2 cognitive behavioral therapy is an important part of treatment too.
