Look for therapists with an MD or DO after their name. Usually with help from a doctor that you trust, your fears can be overcome. If you have fears about taking medication, ERP can be started first and part of the therapy can focus on these fears of medications. It is important not to give up on a medication until you have been taking it as prescribed for 10 to 12 weeks.
Many patients feel no positive effects for the first few weeks of treatment but then improve greatly. No one knows how long patients should take these medications once they have been effective.
Some patients are able to stop their medications after a 6 to month treatment period. It does appear that over half of OCD patients and maybe many more will need to be on at least a low dose of medication for years, perhaps even for life. It seems likely that the risk of relapse is lower if patients learn to use behavior therapy techniques while they are doing well on medications.
And if medication is tapered slowly even over several months , the ERP treatment may enable patients to control any symptoms that return when they stop taking the medication. After medications are stopped, symptoms do not return immediately; they may start to return within a few weeks to a few months.
If OCD symptoms return after a medication is stopped, most patients will have a good response if the medication is restarted. Many patients drink alcohol while on these medications and handle it well, but be sure to ask your doctor or pharmacist if it is safe. It is important to keep in mind that alcohol may have a greater effect on individuals who are taking these medications; one drink could affect an individual as if it were two drinks. Drug companies give doctors free samples of some medications.
Doctors give these samples to patients who cannot afford the cost of the medications. Most drug companies also have programs that help patients get these and other medications free or at a reduced cost.
Please check with your physician. Overview Medication is an effective treatment for OCD. For medications to work, they must be taken regularly and as directed by their doctor. About half of OCD patients stop taking their medication due to side effects or for other reasons. If you experience side effects, you should bring this up with your doctor so they can help you address them.
They may be able to change your dose or find a different type of SRI that your system better tolerates. What kinds of medications may help OCD? Do all antidepressants help OCD symptoms? How Do These Medications Work? Are There Side Effects?
