Two years ago doctors told that my daughter has Borderline Personality disorder. She is going to psychotherapy regularly. Also sometimes she needs to take certain medications, antidepressants and antipsychotics. Please, can somebody tell me something more about Antipsychotics? And why these medications are important for people with Borderline Personality disorder? Thanks!

As you probably know, many medications are used in conjunction with Borderline Personality Disorder treatments, although the evidence base is limited. Antipsychotics are sometimes used to treat distortions in thinking or false perceptions. Several atypical antipsychotics, including olanzapine, clozapine, quetiapine and risperidone, may help BPD patients with psychotic-like, impulsive or suicidal symptoms.
