I would say yes - somewhat. It's cured my anxiety and also pretty much cured my emetophobia so it Could very well do the same thing for your OCD. How much are you on? I found for anxiety, it generally needs to be upped a little higher than for depression. I take 15mg.

Ty for answering my question. I watched my mother take an antidepressant my whole life. I have had OCD and panic attacks since I was probably 15 I have been put on numerous things that has not worked. Finally my doctor put me on this Lexapro 10 milligrams before I go to bed I've been looking at the bottle for 3 days trying to decide if I should try it or not never been a fan of antidepressants never seen to help my mother but all the positive feedback that I have read on here. It really makes me want to give it a try. My OCD has begin to take over to a degree i had an experienced until now so I guess I want to give this a try thank you so much.

Good for you! Just remember though, you may get worse before you get better. You may also get side effects. All this goes away. It takes around 6 weeks to start working so hang in there. Also, you may need to increase your dose after 8 weeks.
