(1) Drug Treatment that affects neurotransmitter serotonin
(2) Psychological Treatment – Cognitive Behavioral Therapy

Drugs like Prozac, Zoloft etc. that inhibits the reuptake of serotonin have yielded good results but they produce clear improvement in only 50 – 75% of OCD patients and symptoms return quickly after discontinuation of the drugs and notable side effects like nausea, fatigue, loss of sexual desire are produced.
Psychological Treatment –
Behavioral Treatments for OCD are only psychological treatments consistently shown to reduce OCD symptoms. These procedures are sometimes combined with drug treatments are based on the principle of extinction described for treating phobias.

- Exposure to the stimulus that elicits obsessive ruminations and anxiety.
- Response Prevention in which the person is kept from performing an anxiety reducing ritual.
