Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Resource Page
The Obsessive Compulsive Disorder Resource page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the International OCD Foundation. It is intended to provide information on Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) and to streamline and simplify the way those with OCD may find assistance paying for their medications.
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) is disorder of the brain and behavior. OCD causes severe anxiety in those affected. OCD involves both obsessions and compulsions that take a lot of time and get in the way of important activities the person values.
Patient Assistance Programs (PAPs) are programs offered by pharmaceutical companies to help those most in need gain access to their medications at no or low cost. Each program has varying financial and insurance guidelines - when in doubt, call the program. To find the specific PAP information for a specific drug click on the list below. You will then be taken to a listing of all the programs available for that medication.|
