      Currently on Paroxetine. 👍 It definitely helped at the start of this chapter.

      i'm on sertraline, which i switched to after being put on citalopram initially, which they gave me after a bad episode i had last summer. i'm mad because they gave me meds before giving me a proper assessment for a diagnosis, and i'm still waiting. i'm not even sure if either of these medications are helpful for my specific symptoms, but the sertraline is better than the citalopram at least.

      I take Lamotrigine, it's usually used for Bipolar Disorder (which I got diagnosed with BEFORE BPD but it helps somewhat) and its an anti-seizure medication; it helps fend off larger episodes for longer.

        @leah14 Venlafaxine is incredible, it gives so much energy

      I'm on Invega, it's mostly for my schizoaffective because my BPD isn't very active now.

      Effexor, seroquel, and Latuda

      I take depakote, cymbalta, and Seroquel to manage my symptoms. The cocktail has been incredible and has also helped manage my chronic pain, borderline personality disorder, Tourettes, and even my anxiety too

        @malachai I forgot to put that it also manages my bipolar disorder too

      I currently take Quetiapine to help with mood stabilisation and Vortioxetine for low mood. I've tried many other antidepressants that haven't worked as they should, this one is fairly new so we'll see how it goes.
