  1. Hello Dr. Satyajit Sir,
    Thanks for your question. I wouldn't give you false hopes sir by saying that your mother would be able to get rid of OCD at an age that she may be at. However, the silver lining in dark clouds is that she can be well - controlled on serotonergic/ anti-obsessive medications and minor behavior therapy techniques. Considering her age, befor prescribing any medicine to her, we will also have to look into any other medical comorbidities that she may have at this age like diabetes, hypertension, thyroid, arthritis etc and then consider the treatment. She will need regular medicInes with good compliance and long term follow up.
