Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a common mental health problem. Symptoms typically include recurring thoughts and repetitive actions in response to the recurring thoughts. A common example is recurring thoughts about germs and dirt, with a need to wash your hands repeatedly to "clean off the germs" However, there are many other examples like sexual thoughts, counting, checking, orderliness, etc. The usual treatments are cognitive behavioural therapy (CBT), a selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor (SSRI) antidepressant medicine, or both. Treatment often works well to reduce the symptoms and distress of OCD greatly. Consult a psychiatrist. All the best.

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.

If you find your symptoms recurring after stopping medication, it is an indication that your treatment is incomplete. Consult your treating psychiatrist and continue the medication as prescribed by them. Premature termination of treatment can lead to relapse, worsening of symptoms, incomplete resolution of symptoms and even resistance to treatment. Always take medication as prescribed for a specific period of time. Medication can be tapered, but only by the doctor, and only when there is significant improvement. Tapering is done very gradually.
