Is OCD Controlling the Strings of Your Life?

We’re conducting Clinical Trials in search of a Potential Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment!

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is a common psychiatric disorder characterized by uncontrollable and repeated thoughts or a need to do something over and over again. Over time, the anxiety associated with OCD becomes more intense. The condition affects around 2% to 3% of the overall population.

Revive Research Institute is now conducting clinical research to discover a new OCD treatment that might help manage your symptoms.

You may qualify for our OCD clinical trials if you:

  • Are 18 to 65 years of age
  • Have been diagnosed with OCD for 1 year or more
  • Comply with all study procedures

*Take part in this clinical research trial at no cost to you or your private medical insurance. You will be reimbursed financially for your time and travel. In addition, all participants get free study-related treatment from Doctors and Healthcare experts.

*If you are interested in participating in the OCD Clinical Trials or would like more information, please fill out the form so we can determine if you qualify for the study and contact you. Note that this is an entirely voluntary decision. If you change your mind about participating in a study, you can leave at any time.

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder OCD Psychiatry Clinical Trials

About the OCD Study

OCD is a prevalent psychiatric disease, affecting 2-3% of the general population. We are conducting OCD Clinical Trials. In this research study, participants will be given study treatment in addition to their standard of care treatment, especially for subjects who failed to respond adequately to their current therapy regime.

Around 700 men and women will be given the study drug. OCD Clinical Trials will be conducted in multiple centers throughout the United States. This is a Phase 3, multicenter, placebo-controlled Clinical Trial.

The study treatment i.e. Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment duration for the participants will be 10 weeks, after which they will return to the clinic 2 weeks after discontinuing study treatment for a follow-up safety visit. If participants qualify and decide to participate, they will be given the option to take part in the Open Label Extension study. We are assessing the safety, efficacy and tolerability of an oral study drug given as an adjunctive therapy in comparison to placebo. Vital signs, ECGs, clinical laboratory results, and adverse events will help us assess the tolerability of the study drug.

*There is no cost to you, your private medical insurance, or the public health insurance plan for study procedures. The study drug, related procedures, and visits will be provided at no charge for the duration of the study.

Get Started: What to Expect?

If you are battling with OCD, the unhealthy form of perfection, then this study might be an option for you. This is a Phase 3 study, evaluating the long-term safety and tolerability of an investigational medication in people with OCD who have had an inadequate response to the traditional obsessive compulsive disorder treatment.

After you fill the online form above, one of our staff members will contact you and give you a call to determine whether you’re a suitable fit for the OCD Clinical Trials. You will be requested to sign an Informed Consent Form (ICF) after your eligibility has been confirmed. This will be done on Screening/Introductory Visit for which you will be called on the clinical site. After signing, you will be asked a series of questions about your health and medical history, as well as undergo various tests.

You will formally be a part of this study then, which will last around 10 weeks. You will be given the experimental drug or the placebo, which you must take orally, during this time. The placebo is a drug without the active ingredient. Neither you nor your study doctor will know which drug you receive unless, in the case of an adverse event.

*All study-related care is provided free of cost. Complete physical examination and other study related assessments will be done by expert physicians and health care experts.

About Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD)

Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Treatment

Obsessive compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by a pattern of unwanted thoughts and fears (obsessions) that cause people to engage in repetitive actions (compulsions). Obsessions and compulsions create severe discomfort and interfere with daily tasks.

Symptoms:

Obsessions, compulsions, or both are possible symptoms. Symptoms might start as moderate and gradually worsen.

  1. Stress aggravates the symptoms.
  2. Thoughts that are persistent, repetitive, and unpleasant
  3. Experiencing compulsions or seeing pictures that are disturbing
  4. To get rid of the ideas, compulsive or repetitive action is used.

Causes: 

The specific cause has yet to be discovered. It’s possible that it’s linked to:

  1. Changes in the brain’s structure and function
  2. History of the family
  3. OCD illnesses are considered to be triggered by environmental variables such as infections.
  4. Life’s stressful moments
  5. Depression or anxiety are examples of other mental illnesses.
  6. Misuse of alcohol or drugs

Prevention: 

Obsessive-compulsive disorder can’t be completely avoided. Getting therapy as soon as possible, on the other hand, may help prevent OCD from worsening.

  1. Finding out more about your illness.
  2. Taking medications exactly as directed and at the correct times.
  3. Find out how to recognize the warning signs and symptoms.
  4. Participate in a support group.
  5. Maintain a social life.

Complications:

If left untreated for a long time, it might lead to problems like:

  1. Skin allergy caused by regular hand washing
  2. Due to repetitive acts, individuals are unable to attend job, school, or social events.
  3. Family and community relationships that may be compromised.
  4. Life seems to be of poor quality.
  5. Suicidal thoughts and deed

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

1. How common is OCD?

OCD is thought to affect roughly 1.2 percent of the population in the United Kingdom.

2. Is OCD an addiction?

NO! Obsessions/compulsions such as sex, gambling, drugs, alcohol, shopping, and football may be appealing, but they are not OCD. They begin as joyful hobbies with no worry or fear of consequences, and hence would never be considered clinical OCD.

3. What type of person is affected by OCD?

Anyone! OCD may be linked across a broad social spectrum, and it does not appear to be limited to any one set of people.

4. What is Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder treatment?

Some people may be able to recover from OCD to the point of being cured with the correct assistance and treatment. There are 2 types of treatments i.e. psychological therapy is a type of therapy that helps one face their fears and obsessive thoughts without “putting them right” with compulsions. And the other is medications that include antidepressants that help alter the chemical balance in your brain.

5. What are the risk factors for OCD?

The causes of OCD are unknown, but the risk factors include:
– Genetics
– Brain Functioning
– Environment

6. What does OCD look like?

Doubting oneself and finding it difficult to accept unpredictability. Having a strong need for everything to be in order and symmetrical. Thoughts of losing control and injuring yourself or others that seem very aggressive or horrifying. Unwanted ideas, such as violence and aggression. These are all things that a person with OCD feels.
