Obsessive-compulsive disorders are classified as mental disorders. Those affected have to perform different actions compulsively or their thoughts are constantly circling around a certain topic. For example, people with obsessive-compulsive disorder cannot leave the apartment without checking several times whether the stove is actually switched off or whether the front door is actually locked. Everyone has certainly had such thoughts before, without it being a question of compulsive behavior. One only speaks of an obsessive-compulsive disorder if such thoughts or actions occur constantly and severely limit the person concerned in coping with everyday life.
The therapy for compulsive behavior is lengthy and characterized by many ups and downs. As a rule, obsessive-compulsive disorder is treated with psychotherapy and sometimes also with the administration of certain antidepressants. The success of the treatment depends on the severity and duration of the disease. Homeopathic remedies can only be used concomitantly.
