Because it is often accompanied by one or more other disorders such as anxiety, depression, impulse control disorders, Tourette's, or ADD, obsessive-compulsive disorder can be hard to diagnose. A panel of physicians clarifies the definition and symptoms of OCD and describes how they impact a patient's life. Case studies examine the challenges patients face when seeking a diagnosis and finding effective treatment options. The program looks at the benefits of combining medications and cognitive behavioral therapy as well as the side effects some patients may face in treatment.
