have bpd, depression, and anxiety i have tryed so many diffrent meds and im trying to educate myself in what med i can take and actually work.. prozac, lexapro, and others have not helped. now wellbutrin is making more irritable and mood swings harder to get out of. my doc wants to try lithem and i just dont know.. i just looked into cymbalta and saw lots of good stuff about it. just wondering if anyone has any reccomendations? i over think and worry and just want to get better and move forward with my life.
hey, I am new to the site but old to bpd I have not found any drug that will help with bpd but I am treated with geodon and cymbalta for bi polar and I'm on campral for alcoholism that helps with impulse control but I still fly into a rage over small stuff. I'm finding that the whole over thinking and the catastrophising cannot be helped with meds. I am now trying to get help with that but people have a hard time understanding the agony that comes along with it. I am reaching out to people and trying to explain that I don't know what it feels like to be comforted so when I try to self sooth I don't know what feeling I am supposed to have. none of this is easy but I'm still trying.
