Study Finds BPD Responds to Medication

Friday, 25 Feb 2011 02:34 PM

There is a wide array of borderline personality disorder medications for this well-researched psychological problem. Borderline personality disorder drugs, combined with counseling and therapy sessions, are known to have a higher level of efficacy compared with the treatments that involve drugs alone.

Antidepressants and mood stabilizers help patients cope with depression and moodiness, which are among the most common symptoms of borderline personality disorder. More severe symptoms can be treated using antipsychotic drugs to reduce the occurrence of frequent imbalance and a lack of stability in the ongoing thought process and thus to treat borderline personality behavior.

SSRI drugs like Paxil®, Prozac®, and Effexor® are effective in controlling borderline personality behavior characterized by anger and impulsiveness. Neuroleptics, anticonvulsants, and atypical antipsychotic agents like Risperdal®, Seroquel®, Zyprexa®, Clozaril®, Geodon®, and Abilify® are among the recommended borderline personality disorder drugs.
