In brief: It depends
In head to head studies, antidepressants generally work equally well.
The choice of antidepressant really depends on the side effects that the person may have or be willing to tolerate. In ocd, most doctors use either fluvoxamine or clomipramine because they work the strongest on serotonin receptors. But other antidepressants have been known to help too.
