The medicine can be suggested only after detailed assessment by a psychiatrist. It will be beneficial if you learn behavioural skills and how to deal with repetitive thoughts and impulses. Psychotherapy will equip you will various techniques which will give you the extra relief. Talk to a trained and qualified psychologist. Help is just one call away.

Trust the doctor who is treating her or change the doc if u can't. Also apart from treating the effect i.e. OCD, meet some therapist who can help finding the cause and work on it.

How much time is required for complete cure of obsessive compulsive disorder? I am taking fluvoxamine tablet 100 mg twice daily. If the ocd is of mild to moderate grade.

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.
