1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Abstract
    The efficacy of SSRIs in the treatment of OCD has been well established. Tramadol may represent a useful initial treatment for patients with OCD because it has low abuse potential, low physical dependency, and mild tolerance, and it may provide rapid symptom reduction during SSRI titration. Controlled studies are required to demonstrate tramadol's effectiveness in the treatment of OCD.
