Suffering with OCPD. Is there any specific drug for treating this?

I have OCPD and not OCD . They are completely different from what I have researched and learned. I have done CBT and meds including anti anxiety drugs. Do you know any drugs specific for OCPD? It seems like its really just a need to control the anxiety that comes when things don t go my way. I feel very little if any difference on the drug I have been taking. Thanks

Psychiatrist 's  Response
Thanks for your query. I am unsure as to whether a psychiatrist assessed you and labelled you as "OCPD" or if it is based on your understanding. As you said rightly both are entirely different and OCPD is a personality disorder. OCPD in mild form can be one's asset as it includes punctuality, cleanliness and dedication to work thought it might be harmful if full blown as a disorder. It is not possible to change one's personality though behavioural interventions might be helpful. There is no need for any psychotropic medication if is indeed OCPD. Hope you found the information useful.
