I am having ocd. I am taking escitalopram 40 mg but still no relief from anxiety and depression. What should I do?
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. All the best.

Depression is one of the major reason for upset sexual life and hence problems in relationship. You should always focus at improving your relationships, at it is the surest way of leading a content and fulfilled life. Ego, anger, anxiety, domination, and stubbornness can cause turmoil in relationships. Proper stress/depression management is required in order to get your life back to the track.

I was on the medication for ocd since last 1 and a half years under proper medical guidance of a trained and experienced psychiatrist the main medicine was fluvoxin cr 100 mg and other kept changing according to my response to the doctor on my several visits. I was improving very well and my course was about to end. But suddenly due to educational purposes, I had to come to the other state for my further studies as a graduate. Before coming here we consulted him for the last time and he reduced the dosage by some amount. But I suddenly stopped taking the medicine after coming here. I even talked to him on the phone when I came here and he said as far as I am not feeling any other issues theres no issue in stopping the medicine. But I think I may be facing some problems now. Now, I want to know what can be done.

Dear Lybrate User, cognitive behavioral therapy (cbt), a type of psychotherapy, is effective for many people with ocd. Take online consultation or visit at my clinic as you need therapy along with medications. Exposure and response prevention (erp), a type of cbt therapy, involves gradually exposing you to a feared object or obsession, such as dirt, and having you learn healthy ways to cope with your anxiety. Erp takes effort and practice, but you may enjoy a better quality of life once you learn to manage your obsessions and compulsions.

Hello, biting finger cuticles is literally bad habit. I am glad to here that you accept it dimple. And you stopped it then it is very good. So, your fingers and hand look beautiful, I suggest you some remedies for that. First wash your hand with panchavalkala kashaya. Clean it with nice and clean towel. Then rub the shatadhaut ghrita on it for 15 minutes and then leave it for entire night. Follow these steps for one month. You will be happy to see your beautiful fingers and hand once again.

Hello lybrate-user, taking zapiz (clonazepam) sos id preferable than taking depsol plus for acure relief of your anxiety symptoms. If you are facing panic attacks frequently even after being on regular treatment than you should meet your doctor for re evaluation of your prescription. You can also try psychotherapy along with medication for further improvement.

Can a psychologist treat sexual ocd by cbt only without giving medicine like a psychiatrist?

Hello and welcome to Lybrate. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice. Sexual ocd is just like ocd. Ocd is treated with medicines as well as cbt. The medicines prescription depends on mainly on the patient's anxiety and depression based on the ocd. I suggest telephonic counseling and online psychotherapy for you. You can contact me for further advice and treatment options. Let me know if I can assist you further. Take care.

Psychiatric drugs are given by psychiatrists who are experts in their field. It can be dangerous to fiddle with them without consulting your doctor.
