Borderline Personality Disorder – Medications

November 8, 2021


The medications that we use for individual borderline personality disorder really is individually based. Specifically, what symptomology are you presenting with? So, any individual with borderline personality disorder who is suicidal or depressed or presents with anxiety, we can use the SSRIs, the serotonin selective reuptake inhibitors, or, we can even use the SNRIs. So we can definitely use the antidepressant class of pharmacology. A prison that has the mass mood swings, the pulling in, pushing away type of presentation, those individuals benefit from a mood stabilizer. So one of the mood stabilizers that we tend to be like are medications, like Lamictal, very, very, very good with patients that suffer from borderline personality disorder. Another manifestation of the borderline personality disorder would be the individuals that present with the psychotic aspect of the borderline personality disorder. So those individuals, utilizing antipsychotics would be very important.
