Obsessive Compulsive Disoder's Connection to Memory

06/12/2007

Question:

I suffered from Obsessive Compulsive Disorder 4 years ago and now I am much better, but I feel that my achievements in college and memory are worse since my OCD has gotten better. Could this be related to OCD?

Answer:

I am not aware of any connection between OCD and memory problems. A number of things can affect memory or concentration including anxiety, depression, and various medications. I would suggest you consult a psychiatrist or neurologist to have a more through evaluation of your memory.

I hope this helps.
