anyone taking antidepressants with BPD? i’ve been on Lexapro and Wellbutrin for almost a year now since i first got diagnosed with (inititally) social anxiety & depression. it’s been so long and i honestly think the Lexapro has made my BPD worse… is that a thing? what meds or treatments have worked for y’all?

    Lexapro has kept me afloat and on the brighter side of life. I'm sorry that you're dealing with that. Wellbutrin didn't work for me.

    Lexapro really helped me but I don't have BPD

    i was almost diagnosed with bpd and still in the process of getting a deeper diagnosis. i’ve been on lexapro for about 1-1 1/2 years now and i didn’t really notice my bpd until i went back on lexapro. it’s definitely something to bring up to your doctor to see if they recommend a different medication. i’m on lexapro and lamictal/lamotrigine which helps with bpd and i’ve noticed it getting better. i take both lexapro and lamictial now and i feel a lot better with my bpd. i hope this helps :)
