Abstract

OBSESSEIVE COMPULSIVE DISORDER (OCD) – AN UNKNOWN PSYCHIATRIC DISORDER

Divya Chikkala*, Lakshmi Prasanna Vinnakota, Dr. G. Ramesh and Dr. P. Srinivasa Babu

ABSTRACT

OCD is a brain based neurobiological disorder. Obsessive–compulsive disorder (OCD) is a psychological disorder that is diagnosed based on the presence of either obsessions or compulsions (although, in most cases, both typically occur). Life time prevalence for ocd has been estimated as 1.6% in the general population and 2-4% in the pediatric population. The onset of illness is earlier in men than in women. Abnormal functioning of several neurotransmitter systems, including norepinephrine (NE), ? - aminobutyric acid (GABA), glutamate, dopamine (DA), and serotonin (5-HT) may affect the manifestations of anxiety disorders. Antipsychotics are sometimes used to augment the effect of an SSRI. There is evidence for haloperidol, risperidone and aripiprazole.
