Advise I Just discovered my son is OCD

Hi my 16 years old son will have his first appointment in two more days with doctor about OCD treatment ..He also suffers thoughts of fears and panic ..Anyone can give a quick fix until he see the doctor ..It's very hard when he is a school ..what can he do when all those thoughts come into his mind and he is in class

If only there was a quick fix! But if he is prescribed antidepressants they may help initially, though they take a few weeks to kick in. Make sure he is offered CBT. Does the school know and do they help him at all? It is important that they make allowances for his condition. Hope the appointment goes well.


Very good advice I will ask the doctor how the school has to act when he's having a hard time with his thoughts in the meantime I'm waiting for the appointment thank you so much
