Our expert says:
OCd responds well to treatment, with CBT counselling and drugs like Zoloft can also help a good deal, but not when taken for just a few months. YOur observation is very interesting --- these "sleeping tablets" could indeed have worsened your condition in several ways --- congratulations on having the good sense and strength to come off them. One way in which this can happen is that where they are short-acting sedatives, when there is a gap between doses, you might get some withdrawal effects which could make you more agitated.
Consider CBT counselling to omplete the ask of freeing yourself from the OCD
