Psychopharmacological Treatment and Psychosurgery
A wide variety of drugs have been employed in the treatment of obsessive-compulsive disorders but most of the studies have thus far been uncontrolled. These drugs have included MAO inhibitors (Annesley, 1969; Jain, Swinson, & Thomas, 1970), l-Tryptophan (Yaryura-Tobias & Bhagavan, 1977), LSD (Brandrup & Vanggaard, 1977), benzodiazepines (Burrell, Culpan, Newton, Ogg, & Short, 1974), chlorpromazine (Trethowan & Scott, 1955), and tricyclic antidepressants (e.g., Ananth, Solyom, Solyom, & Sookman, 1975).
