Sure: Obsessive-compulsive symptoms, depression symptoms, and anxiety symptoms can occur together and feed on one another. Each patient is a little unique, so treatments are tailored to the individual. One's psychiatrist and primary care doctor can help with treatments and lifestyle changes, even environmental adjustments... to find the least symptomatic setting.
