OCD and depression

My cousin who is 30 seems to suffer from obsessive compulsive disorder. He has unexplained fears and at times keeps on repeating the same activity. He has also developed an affinity to odd numbers. For instance he counts the number of words in each line and makes sure that the count is odd, counts the number of tiles while walking. It seems he had such problems from childhood. But it seems he is able to control his behavior to an extent these days. Do we need to take him to a doctor ? Will he need to take medicines or will a counselling help? Will he go into depression if this condition is not treated ?

Dreams about dead

I am not well since a month. I have been to various doctors like gynaecologist, general surgeon. But they are not able to diagnose the cause of my pain. Due to this my anxiety is increased. Recently I dreamt of a person who has already died. And today I dreamt about my grandmother who is also no more. I feel my symptoms are indicating something serious. Because I still have pain and its going on since a month. Does dreams about dead indicate anything serious?

Medicine weight gain

I am a paranoid schizophrenic. I am currently taking Loxapine 10mg/day. I have gained 10kg on it. Want advice switching medication that will not cause that much weight gain. Have already taken Risperidone in the past which also caused major weight gain. So now I want advice as to which antipsychotic to try that may not cause weight gain. Don't advice me on how my mental health is more important that how I look. That is none of your business. I want to continue taking my medication, but I would like to try different medications until I find one that doesn't cause weight gain, as there are many people for whom this process has worked. Also loxapine is difficult to find in Delhi, so I'd like a medicine that is easily available in Delhi. How is abilify? I know a lot of people gain weight on it, but for some people it is weight neutral. Please advice.
