I believe my bf has obessive compulsive disorder, what's best to deal with it?


The first step is to get a quality psychiatric or psychological evaluation to confirm the diagnosis and make sure there are no other co-occurring conditions. Cognitive behavioral therapy for OCD is extremely helpful alone or in combination with medications. Serotonergic antidepressants can be used to treat OCD. It can take up to 12 weeks to see the full effect.
