      Hello

      Anyone here on medication? Was it helpful? I’ve been accepting my intrusive sexual thoughts for a while and they are still prevelant.

      Also anyone on mood stabilisers or medication you had to get from a psychiatrist then went to the gp to get meds for ocd? If so, did the gp send you to a mental health service because of this? I am worried if this happens if I go the gp to get meds for ocd.

        It’s not uncommon for individuals to seek medication for managing symptoms of mental health conditions like OCD. Many people find relief with the guidance of a psychiatrist who can assess and prescribe appropriate medications. If you’re experiencing intrusive thoughts and are considering medication, it’s advisable to discuss your concerns and symptoms with a mental health professional.
