Letter to the Editor
Because this piece does not have an abstract, we have provided for your benefit the first 3 sentences of the full text.
To the Editor: Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) is a leading cause of illness-related disability. Identifying more effective treatments with faster onset of action would be a major advance. Medications thought to modulate the glutamate system are promising new agents; for example, open trials of riluzole, memantine, and minocycline as augmentation to serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SRIs) suggest that up to half of OCD patients may experience reductions in symptoms.
