Consult psychiatrist: Hi there. I am a paychologist, medication is not my specialty. Having worked with many clients with OCD, I would strongly suggest that you consult with a psychiatrist to describe your symptoms, provide a thorough history, and express your concerns. The psychiatrist should be able to guide you. I usually find a combination of therapy and medication works best.

Is it safe to take inositol while on fluoxetine?

Most likely yes: I could find no reports of any interactions. However, you should inform your prescriber that you are taking alternative/complementary substances like inositol.
