Obsessive Compulsive Disorder - Is negative thoughts part of OCD?

Answers (1)

Negative thoughts can certainly be an aspect of your OCD, but they could also signal other things such as dpression. I'd suggest letting your doctor know about these thoughts before they get worse (I'm pretty certain that they are affecting your daily routine in some way or you wouldn't be mentioning them). Also, he/she needs to make sure that whatever meds you are currently taking aren't causing these thoughts as some kind of side-effect. Hope this helps.

My doctor is aware and I'm on Zoloft 50mg for 3 weeks and the neg thoughts are much better so is my depression. I just don't know if we should increase the meds or should I give it more time. I'm more afraid of not being able to control these thoughts ever. Thanks
