Hi, one of my patients is having severe OCD. He always had an unwanted tension about touching objects that were touched by others, even if it was his wife. His wife approached me, saying that he is very strict in keeping all the things neatly, if it's not neat he will be aggressive. Once he has slapped her and it made their relationship weak. Initially, I gave him antidepressant, Prozac, thinking that it was mild. But it didn't work for him. Being a physician it was my limit. I was not supposed to give him, Psychotherapy. I referred him to an OCD treatment (Cognitive behavioral therapy) from a clinic in Toronto ( http://www.cbtassociates.com/about-you/p... ). Now he is under the treatment. I am sure that his treatment can be controlled. But I doubt whether it is curable or not. Whats your opinion about this?

First, this is an international site and you are airing a patient's history here and that goes against the law--HIPPA. You should not be putting out a patient's personal medical history or even mental history on here or anywhere. That is the patient's private medical information even not disclosing his name or any identifying markers can get you in trouble.

Second, you are a professional---a physician. This is not professional.

Third, you are asking us our opinions? We are not professional mental health people or even medical professionals. Our opinions are not going to be good ones.

Why are you worried that this would be cured or not? You apparently have referred him to those that can deal with his issues...ask them.
