Just search the forum for it. It’s very common.

Hi there and welcome to the forums. I'm on prozac/Fluoxetine. I've been on it for years, but I do believe it works for me. I do sweat a bit at night,  and nod off during the day,  but that could be because I'm in my sixties. I do trust it though.  I also have Olanzapine at night, and that helps too. It doesn't affect driving or doing tasks during the day. I also use cognitive behavioural therapy techniques to target the ocd on a daily basis . In the blue footer at the bottom of this page there is an 'All our information ' section, with lots of resources to help. Have you requested cognitive behavioural therapy CBT through your doctor?
