Mine OCD is mild so this may not help you at all. I have no idea if my meds help the OCD at all. What has helped me is accepting some of my harmless compulsions. For example I need to lock my car 3 times when get out. It hurts nobody and I feel better. Or I have to fold toilet paper a certain way. Again, hurts nobody (and probably saves me paper).. I can't think of others right now but I'm just you get my point. Things that are harmful I try to prevent, like putting blister bandaids on my fingers if I start picking at my skin. It might look funny but it stops me. If I pick my scalp I get dandruff that I have trouble curing so I try hard to leave it alone and have a routine to help.


I Hope you feel better.

I'm on 5 psych meds but for bipolar, not OCD. I'm sure some of them help OCD (I think gabapentin does) but have no way of knowing with the multiple diagnoses and multiple meds. Sorry I'm not much help.
