In brief: Not clear

All of the ssris have been shown to be highly beneficial for treating ocd.
Those available in the us are fluoxetine (prozac), sertraline (zoloft), fluvoxamine (luvox), citalopram (celexa), escitalopram (lexapro), and clomipramine (anafranil). Side effects vary, and sometimes one will work and aother won't, so trying several if needed is appropriate.
