Obsessive Compulsive Disorder
Few disorders can be as exhausting as Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD). The unrelenting recurrent intrusive thoughts, referred to as obsessions, coupled with the powerful compulsions for compensatory behaviors can be emotionally consuming. Individuals with this disorder find it very difficult to function and generally experience a poor quality of life. This condition is treatable though, with the combination of medications and psychotherapy.
Effective psychotherapies for OCD include exposure and response prevention, as well as cognitive behavioral therapy. Frequently utilized medications mostly include the serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors (SSRI’s) as well as a few other agents. Symptoms can be brought into full remission and functional capacity can be restored. Patients with successfully treated OCD can have a favorable prognosis.
