Abstract
Over many years, obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) has moved from a condition regarded as
untreatable, psychiatric disorder of life-long nature to a condition that is highly manageable. This
is a very positive change to about 1%-3% of adults and children with this form of disorder as,
thanks to advances in both psychological and pharmacological therapies, prognosis for those
who are victims of this horrible condition called OCD is quite good in the long term, even
though some of this OCD patients have comorbid disorders that are difficult to cure. However,
there is still a long way to go until OCD is regarded as either easily treatable or the effective
treatments among clinicians. This paper on the definition, symptoms, causes, prevention,
medication treatment and therapy associated with OCD.
