No drug should be used without a proper assessment by a doc, a proper diagnosis, and then a discussion of treatment options. If the doc considers that Fluoxetine is a good option, use a cheaper but equivalent generic version, and not the more expensive Prozac version of it. Buspar ( Buspirone ( isn't there a generic version, there, too ? Your pharmacist should know ) is useful for anxiety disorders and not habit-forming, and might even slightly help the depression or OCD in combination with something like Fluoxetine
