Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common, chronic and long-lasting disorder in which a person has uncontrollable, reoccurring thoughts (obsessions) and behaviors (compulsions) that he or she feels the urge to repeat over and over. It's a neurochemical disturbance in brain and worsens due to stressful environment. OCD is typically treated with medication, psychotherapy or a combination of the two. Treatment duration depends upon the intensity and frequency of episodes and may be needed throughout life. Usual dose of clomipramine for treatment of OCD is per day in divided doses.

Pursue hobbies that make you happy. Manage time by making a schedule that includes physical exercises and De stress routines. Communicate your thoughts to people you are comfortable with.
