Dear Nurul, OCD usually takes a longer duration of drugs ad also more dosage. If it you put in efforts to expose yourself to the situations and tolerate your anxiety without giving into compulsive behaviour, you may be able to stop drugs in 2 years or so.

Dear lybrate-user, welcome to lybrate. Drug induced anxiety disorder treatment consists of cognitive behavioral therapy, life style changes, relaxation therapy and meditation. Once you learn how to manage your anxiety yourself with the help of the above treatment methods, you will be cured and you can stop the medicines if any. The process could take some time according to the depth of the problem and the circumstances at which the patient lives. Take care.

I missed a single dose of an SSRI for OCD. Does that mean that my serotonin levels have decreased. And the treatment has to start again from the beginning. Was on fluvoxamine and sertraline. Skipped the morning dose by mistake. No side effects felt. So anyways does it affect my treatment.

Missing one dose may not have an effect as the half life of these medications is quite long. However ensure that you take medication as prescribed on time so that you get relief from your symptoms. Keep a fixed time to take your medication, e.g. morning just after breakfast. Keep an alarm if you tend to forget. Compliance helps to achieve remission.
