There is a therapy called cognitive behavioral therapy for OCD. It is used along with the medications. This therapy has good successful rates if the person is willing to do it. Ask your doctor to arrange it for you i am sure you will improve.

Hello Sowjanya,

I agree with my colleague regarding the use of psychotherapeutic approaches, particularly CBT. CBT has been proved to be useful for OCD and depression individually also.

However, I am more concerned about your stated desires to completely stop the medicine AND recover as soon as possible. That sounds like trying to press the brake and accelerator simultaneously, and that never works! :)

It is important that you identify what your primary goal is. My suggestion is that you primarily focus on quick and maximal recovery from your symptoms. Then, do what it takes to reach this goal. A combination of medicine and psychotherapy is the best way to get there.

Remember, the medicines are there you help you. When we have fever, we take medicines to control the temperature and treat whatever may causing the fever. Try to think of this in the same way.

Here's wishing you a quick recovery.

Warm regards,
Dr. Saifuddin Kharawala
