OCD and its Treatment

Today I thought about writing a brief about Obsessive Compulsive Disorder which it's known as OCD.

What is OCD?

OCD is a disorder which a lot of people suffer from. Everyone with OCD have different types of OCD. It is a disorder that comes in different ways, Such as,  thoughts, redoing thing, Cleaning the house more than it has to be , Washing hands so many times and, ect

Here are some types of the OCD:

Some people have OCD about dirtiness. They think everything around them is not clean and, they think they will have a disease and die. Also, there is some people that fear to shake another person's hand, going to public washrooms and, etc. Thus, you find them washing their hands hundreds of times or showering as well.

Also, there is some people that have OCD about locking the house door. They keep checking the front door to make sure it's locked. It's kind of something in their brain telling them OH hey, the door is still unlocked go lock it. So, they follow their thoughts and listen to it. As if OCD is controlling them.

How to get rid of OCD?

First of all, You need to take some meds which your Doctor will prescribe to you, There are some kinds of drugs which is very effective in treating OCD, They are primary made to treat depression and anxiety. but they treat OCD as well. as we know the people having depression it cause them anxiety and OCD as well. therefore the drugs bellow are good to treat OCD. 

The Antidepressants that have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to treat OCD include:

- Clomipramine (Anafranil)
- Fluvoxamine (Luvox CR)

If you are suffering from OCD you must see a doctor and most likely he/she will give you one of the above drugs.

 You have to follow the Doctor's instructions and do not over dose yourself or take less than what was prescribed to you and do not stop taking it suddenly it may make your OCD worse. Also don't make the drugs as a basic treatment, You must do other things beside the medication

- Ignore the thoughts that comes to your brain

- Do not re-do things no matter what your OCD tells you for example: ''if you enter your house after locking the door and then you get a thought that you did not lock the door, Ignore that and do not go back to check it.

- Do new things to keep your mind busy, Like exercising, read books, fishing, sport, ignore OCD, and hang out with your friends etc..

- You must believe that you can fight the OCD and win it.

- Do not just lay on drugs, the above things plus the drugs will help you a lot.


Everyone that has symptoms of OCD should go and get checked by a doctor to get the best treatment.
