Psychiatrist 's  Response
Hi there, thanks for asking. The medications you mentioned work for post partum and for other kind of mood problems. I am sure that you use the medications under supervision of a specialist. It may take up to several months to see the desirable effects and most of the time their dose should be adjusted during the several weeks. Borderline personality disorder is a diagnosis that should be made with attention and after several sessions. In cases that specialist is sure about his diagnosis, a proper therapy which is a series of talks sessions (group or individual) is arranged for the person and the response is good. I wish you the best.

Thanks for your query. Borderline personality disorder is many a time difficult to manage for the psychiatrist. The medication you are on: a combination of mood stabiliser and a SSRI is a standard regimen to reduce your mood swings and impulsivity.
However, i would suggest that you also request your psychiatrist for DBT/Dialectic behavioural therapy for borderline disorder that can be administered by a trained clinical psychologist as it has been proven efficacious for the condition. Wish you good health.
