Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder – Current Treatment – Detailed, Expanded Analysis: Treatment Algorithms: Claims Data Analysis (US)

Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is characterized by repeated intrusive thoughts, uncontrollable repetitive behaviors, or both. First-line OCD therapy commonly includes psychotherapy but may also include pharmacotherapy to relieve patient distress. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), many of which are FDA-approved for OCD, are the first-line drug of choice in OCD management. Other agents, including serotonin / norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs), atypical antipsychotics, anxiolytics, and mood stabilizers, may also be used. Although the OCD therapy market is highly genericized, variation in both the presentation of this indication and patients’ response to treatment may warrant the use of branded agents, particularly in later lines of therapy. In this report, we use national patient-level claims data to explore the use of key therapies for OCD in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients.
