Default Re: OCD Cause

OCD isn't completely caused by chemicals. Yes, they play a part. But patients have been found to relapse if their course of medication was stopped (Maina et al. 2001).

To give yourself the best chance of managing this disorder and improving your life I think it would be prudent to speak with a professional about behavioural therapies as these will help you long term. These could include cognitive-behavioural therapy (CBT) or exposure and response prevention (ERP) therapy for example.
