Dear Dr. Heller,
I have BPD and they want to put me on an antidepressant and anti-anxiety
drug. Is this standard treatment?. I don't want to take medication.
I've had very bad experiences with them in the past. Please reply,
I'm terrified Have A Nice Day!
I can't comment on whether any specific medication being prescribed for you will work or not, but I can tell you medication is standard treatment and your life will likely be full of needless misery unless you take medication. ....
It's often not just the medication, but how they interact with other diagnoses - especially the GAD and PTSD, the sequencing, and dosing. I highly encourage you to review the screening test I use for my patients, and the books I've written may give you the information you are looking for to make a wise decision
All the informations on this site are with an aim of helping to understand a "particular" disease at the very least and puzzle
But more especially to support peoples who suffer, sick or not. In all cases, it is ESSENTIAL to have recourse to a therapist specialized in the disease to confirm or to cancel a diagnosis
Though it is the name doesn't much matter, which is important, it is to apply "the right" treatment to each patient
