Hi,In this case it would be best to consult with your ongoing psychiatrist and continue or modify medications as per your doctor, i understand it takes time but trust your doctor, and if there is doubt with anything you can always go for second opinion, having said that i can walk you through other options for treatment of ocd which are available, after consultation from your psychiatrist about each option you can choose as complimentary method to better deal with ocd.Psychotherapies Where in Patients see a therapist for individual sessions as often as recommended by their therapist generally one or two times a week for 45-50 minutes, there are various types of therapies available for the ocd, however research suggests cognitive behavioural therapy to work very well with Ocd.Intensive Outpatient  Patients may attend groups and one individual session per day several days per weekDay Program  Patients attend treatment during the day (typically group and individual therapy) at a mental health treatment center,  these Intensive Treatment Programs  or theraputic communities.Residential  Patients are treated while living voluntarily in an unlocked mental health treatment center or hospital. Inpatient care  Here treatment is provided in unit in mental health hospital on a voluntary or sometimes involuntary basis. Patients are admitted into this level of care if they are unable to care for themselves or are a danger to themselves or others. The goals of inpatient treatment are to stabilize the patient, which generally takes several days to a week, and then transition the patient to a lower level of care depending upon the recovery.it is equally important that you take good care of your own self and your family, because OCD, being long term disorder chances are if you don't pay attention to it you will feel exhausted. Modify expectations and try to recognise small improvements as well. if you describe in detail of what exactly you have to deal with on everyday basis, we can help you better in techniques with which you can help her and deal with her anxietiesHope this helpsPlease write back to us, we are here to support you through your journey
