Molecules for borderline personality disorder.
BPD Studies.
The borderline disorder is also biological. That is confirmed by many very serious studies (read for example risk of suicide according to serotonin's level)
This means that to recover from this disease, it is often necessary to have recourse to necessary drugs (this depends on the individuals) but also make a therapy .
The studies showed in these pages are only for information, some seems to be effective and some not !
You never should take any medication without medical prescription.
Please note that this list is not exhaustive, don't hesitate to contact us if you know some other important studies
