- Yale Brown Obsessive Compulsive Scale Modified for Compulsive Sexual Behavior (YBOCS) [ Time Frame: Assessed at each visit (every two weeks) until participation in the study was done (Week 8) ]The YBOCS is a reliable and valid, 10-item, clinician-administered scale that rates buying symptoms within the last seven days, on a severity scale from 0 to 4 for each item (total scores range from 0 to 40 with higher scores reflecting greater illness severity).
- Clinical Global Impression Scale - Severity [ Time Frame: Assessed at each visit (every two weeks) until participation in the study was done (Week 8) ]The CGI consists of two reliable and valid 7-item Likert scales used to assess severity in clinical symptoms. The scale ranges from 1 = "very much improved" to 7 = "very much worse." The CGI severity scale was used at each visit and ranges from 1 = "not ill at all" to 7 = "among the most extremely ill."
