Hello and welcome to Healthcare Magic. Thanks for your query.
There are several options available, both in the form of medication as well as psychotherapy
for your depressive and anxiety
symptoms. If one anti-depressant is not working for you, then there are several other options available. If you have mood instabilities, mood-stabilizing medication can also help. For your chronic self-harming behaviour and a likely diagnosis of borderline personality disorder
, treatment is predominantly in the form of psychotherapy. There are several effective and proven therapies like cognitive behavioural therapy, dialectical behaviour therapy
, rational emotive therapy which can help you control your emotions and reduce the self-harming behaviour. So, engaging regularly in therapy, staying motivated and putting in sincere and persistent efforts from your side are essential for successful treatment.
Wish you all the best.
