OCD has a waxing waning course. The disorder is treatable. The treatment consists of medication and cognitive behaviour therapy. Both when used together gives best results. Mindfulness is also effective.

Hi there, The problem of OCD is a treatable and manageable one beyond doubt. There r rare instances of some difficulty in pharmacological management but psychological approach to the same definitely helps. I have no idea what treatment u r taking and have u tried psychotherapiutic interventions yet... And many other things. So u need to be evaluated in detail in order to help u out in totality. Alternatively u can seek the behavioural therapy from ur psychiatrist besides medications. Hope this helps u but feel free to consult further. Take care
