Psychiatrist 's  Response
The treatment for OCD begins with a consultation with a psychiatrist. The psychiatrist will likely recommend medication and psychotherapy to help you. Medication that has proven efficacy includes SSRIs and tricyclics. Look these up online to learn more about them. Typically these meds are initiated at low doses and gradually increased until the patient reports some symptom improvement. Sometimes high doses of these medications are required in order to see a significant response. If one medication is not enough to relieve your symptoms, the psychiatrist may decide to add a second medication to the regimen in an attempt to capture more of your symptoms. Cognitive behavioral psychotherapy may also help you with some symptom relief. Don't give up hope; there is help for you out there. Feel better and best of health to you.
