Medication Treatment of OCD:
Separating Fact from Fiction
Presented by Steven Poskar, MD
This presentation will explain the current evidence-based approach to the pharmacologic treatment of OCD. It will also attempt to correct many of the myths about OCD and it's treatment (there are many). Also discussed will be factors that may lead to poor response to medication and what can be done about them. The audience will also be given ample time to ask questions of the speaker.
