q9 - OCD treatment

7 posts in this topic

What would you do for a patient with OCD and no improvement after two months on 50mg of sertraline:

1. Increase the sertraline

2. Change to a different SSRI

3. Add an antipsychotic

4. Switch to venlafaxine

5. Add sodium valproate

I cant remember another question where it says...tried on some antidepressant and what would be the next step...one of the options was sertraline 150 mgs...which would be the wrong answer coz u wont start someone on 150mgs would u....
