Just wanted to get some info on OCD and medications used to treat it and possible non medication alternatives. The thing is I have an obsession about getting bed bugs, fleas in the house and lice. Also I have contamination OCD issues and wash my hands a lot, shower a lot and change my clothes several times per day. Also, I don't likevto have company over for fear of them bringing in bed bugs or fleas. I am currently talking to a therapist but she says in order for her to treat me the proper way I need medication. I am afraid of taking medication because I am afraid it will give me a heart attack, damage my organs or cause weight gain. This OCD is taking a huge toll on my marriage and my family. Any suggestions? Thanks.
