9-Year-Old With Anxiety/OCD Issues

Question

Hello, My 9 year old daughter seems to be having some anxiety/ocd type problems. She wants us to repeat the same things back to her and at bedtime she has a routine of things she has to say. The other day she said that "her mind told her" she had to repeat something 4 times. She is very distraught about it and cries and says she doesn't know what is wrong with her. It breaks my heart that nothing I try seems to help. When would medication be recommended and is it common for medication to be prescribed in these situations. What else could we do to help her. Thank you.
