Hello and welcome to Just Answer. This medication is used to treat episodes of psychosis in schizophrenia and also bipolar disorder. It can be used in small doses to treat depression. It works as a dopamine receptor antatgonist. It inhibits the release of dopamine. It would be effective for Major Depressive disorder as an alternative to other less effective antidepressants. I am not sure what you mean by OCB. But if you are referring to obsessive compulsive disorder , then it is not used for that. I hope this is helpful
