OCD

I have ocd and have no support system to finance my medicines which are expensive and have to be taken continuously. What do I do?

Hello, thanks for the query. I agree that some medications for ocd are expensive & one needs to take at least 1 year of continuous medications to achieve complete improvement. There are some medications like fluoxetine which are efficacious & cheap too. In addition there are counselling methods known as cbt. Both of which are available at my clinic. If you can give me list of medications along with doses you have received so far; I can help you further. Good luck.
