As you have mentioned that you have OCD, I assume you have already gone to a psychiatrist. So I hope you have some knowledge about this condition. OCD – Obsessive Compulsive Disorder is an Anxiety disorder and the symptoms of individual patient can vary. At the same time the severity of the illness may also vary. To give you a good answer, we definitely need a good history taking and a mental status examination. I ll try to give an overview of the treatment modalities available for OCD. 1. Medical treatment : Psychiatrist will prescribe medication which have been proven to be effective in OCD once the diagnosis is confirmed/made. usually TCA (Try Cyclic Antidepressants) or SSRI (Selective Serotonin Reuptake Inhibitors) are used. A patient may need to take these medication for long time. 2. Psychotherapy : behaviour therapy and cognitive behaviuor therapy is a main treatment modality. These talk therapies have been proven to be well effective in the treatment of OCD. There are many treatment methods which come under psychotherapy. In Sri Lanka, you can get these treatments from any general hospital. Usually every general hospital has a consultant psychiatrist. Sahanaya National Council of Mental Health is an organization which provide counsellings and medical services for patients with mental illnesses and you can contact them to find out more. Some patients with OCD may show some functional impairment due to the illness and they may need some social support. I think Sahanaya also has a social service officer who will be able to help you.
