Thanks for your query. i understand your cost constraints and need for both type of therapies. To clarify, a combination of medication and psychotherapy
works better in OCD
, particularly moderate-severe OCD. Psychiatrists are trained medical professionals authorised to prescribe medication while clinical psychologist
are not authorised to prescribe medication but undertake psychotherapy. Only few psychiatrists would be well-trained in psychotherapy. If feasible, i would suggest you continue the current combination therapy.
