Recommendation details

Recommendation ID: CG31/1
Question: Treatment of [Obsessive-compulsive disorder] (OCD) and [Body dysmorphic disorder] (BDD) among young people and young adults:- Appropriately blinded randomised controlled trials (RCTs) should be conducted to assess the acute and long-term efficacy (including measures of social function and quality of life), acceptability and the cost effectiveness of [cognitive behavioural therapy] (CBT) and [Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors] (SSRIs), alone and in combination, compared with each other and with appropriate control treatments for both the psychological and pharmacological arms. These should be carried out in a broadly based sample of young people and young adults (for example, aged 12-25 years) diagnosed with OCD and BDD across a range of functional impairment (using minimal exclusion criteria). The trials should be powered to examine the effect of treatment for combined versus single-strand treatments and involve a follow-up of 1, 2, and 5 years. Any treatment received in the follow-up period should also be recorded.
