Dear Mam I can understand your concern a lot of people are reluctant to take medications for mental health issues. However, fluvoxin is a safe medicine and us quite effective in OCD. Just like any other physical Health problem like diabetes or horn blood pressure which requires medication, OCD can be treated effectively with medications. Please talk to your psychiatrist in detail about all the concerns that you have. Apart from medication, I you can also consider taking psychological therapy for OCD. Thanks Regards.
