You can get help: Dealing with OCD can be challenging, but starts with a good psychiatric evaluation and treatment plan. Medications may be needed, with dose adjustments or medication changes over time. Psychotherapy is needed too -- for working with obsessions, compulsions, and the anxiety itself. Fortunately, good results can be obtained through consistently working with your psychiatrist and therapist.
