  • It can be readily seen that between 40 and 50% of individuals with OCD without associated diagnosis may not respond to adequate trials of SRIs The response to one SRI agent dose not predict the response to anotherSide effects from one agent do not predict side effect on anotherThe maximum dose that a patient can tolerate or the maximum allowable dose for no less than 12 weeks

  • It is important to offer adequate dose for a sufficient period of at least two and possibly three agents before moving on to augmentation strategies
