Questions to Ask the Doctor
Because the specific cause of obsessive compulsive disorder is unknown, there is no established treatment to cure OCD. Treatment is aimed at minimizing or relieving symptoms, and some proposed treatments are unproven and may be harmful. Always ask your doctor about any new treatment, including any herbal supplements.
