Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

Unfortunately, no medicines can treat HPD. However, there are good psychotherapy types that can treat it. These include psychodynamic psychotherapy and dialectical behavioral therapy (DBT). I would recommend seeking out a therapist who offers one of these two types of treatment.
