Hi , Welcome to Healing Well.

Your doctor may want to keep you on the med as sometimes it can take a period of time to start working properly.  If you do feel that you want to reduce or stop the med then do so only with your doctor's advice as you may need to slowly reduce the dosage before you stop completley.

Talk to your doctor and see what he/she thinks about this and whether you feel you can manage your OCD without any meds.

Take care
