A friend of mine has a hoarding problem (not as bad as the TV show.) Would medication help with this problem?

Can anyone give advice as to which medications might help with this problem? Has anyone here taken meds successfully to treat this condition, and if so, which ones? Thank you
G mc; Like anything to do with an obsession, And things you can't really control could easily get to the point of OCD, The best is to encourage your friend to see help and have this person evaluated. But there are many medications that focus more on OCD, just a few that come to mind are Luvox, Asendin, and a very common one That I have seen many do very well on is Anafranil.But like with anybody the first part is they have to want to seek help. More than likely this would be affecting more than just hoarding. Good luck Chuck1957
