Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

What medications have you already tried? Were they beneficial? How old are you?

Expert:  Dr. Ravoof replied 15 days ago.

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

The most effective medication are SSRI antidepressant type of medications. These type of medications help in controlling the symptoms of OCD in an adult. However, in few patients, they may not be beneficial in which case another type of medication will help.

So, you should try an SSRI antidepressant such as sertraline and if this does not help then another type of medication will be prescribed by your doctor.

Take care.
