Abstract

A REVIEW ON OBSESSIVE-COMPULSIVE DISORDER: A PSYCHIATRIC DISORDER

Madhavi A. Shahapurkar*, Amit A. Shahapurkar, Mayuresh R. Redkar and Yuvraj L. Pandhare

Abstract

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a sort of mental illness or psychiatric disorder which once was thought to be a lifelong illness has now become a manageable with recent advances in behavior therapy and medication. As indicated by the disorder's name, the primary symptoms of obsessive-compulsive disorder are obsessions and compulsions. Common compulsions include excessive hand washing, cleaning, arranging things, counting, seeking reassurance, and checking things. Compulsions occur so often, typically taking up at least one hour per day, that they impair one's quality of life. Obsessive-compulsive disorder thus can be associated with a mental health condition that involves distressing, intrusive, obsessive thoughts and repetitive, compulsive physical or mental acts. As far this disorder is concerned, there is a thin line which separates the compulsions from cautiousness.

Keywords: Obsessions, Compulsions, Intrusive.
