Treatment

Your doctor may recommend a combination of behavior therapy and antidepressant medication.

Behavior therapy

This form of psychological treatment involves retraining your thought patterns and routines so that compulsive behaviors are no longer necessary. One approach in particular is called exposure and response prevention. The therapy involves gradually exposing you to a feared object or obsession and teaching you different ways to deal with it, rather than performing your anxiety-reducing ritual or compulsion. During the course of treatment — usually around 10 weeks — your symptoms gradually decrease in frequency and intensity. Learning the techniques and new thought patterns takes effort and practice, but it's worth it. Studies show that 50 percent to 90 percent of people improve with behavior therapy.

Antidepressant medications

These medications also may help relieve the symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder:

  • Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) such as citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil) and sertraline (Zoloft). SSRIs work by enhancing the brain's ability to use serotonin, a chemical that helps brain cells send and receive messages. Doctors believe serotonin plays a crucial role in mood states.

  • Tricyclic antidepressants such as clomipramine (Anafranil).
