- Change in Total Score on the BDD-Y-BOCS Scale [ Time Frame: Baseline compared to the study endpoint (week 12) [two time points] ]To assess the change in total score on the Body Dysmorphic Disorder-Yale-Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale (BDD-Y-BOCS) from baseline (visit 0) to endpoint (week 12). This is a 12-item scale that assesses obsessions and compulsions related to the patient's BDD. Each item's score ranges from 0 to 4, with a total possible score of 48 on the full assessment. Scores of 0 indicate no impairment, while scores of 4 indicate maximum impairment. Thus higher scores are considered to be a worse outcome.
