Body Dysmorphic Disorder and Meds

Posted by dixie27 on July 5, 2007, at 12:38:50

Hi i'm new. Weird i posted a message and it was up and then disappeared. So here i go again. Is there anyone who suffers from BDD and actually has had any luck with medications. I've had BDD for 10 years and i haven't made any progress that actually lasted for more than a couple of weeks. I'm on a cocktail of 4 meds. Any help would be appreciated regarding how to get better with BDD.
Thanks

Well...

This board is about psychological treatments, so if you're really interested in medications, you might want to post on the meds board -- plain "Psycho Babble" on the list of boards.

But for BDD, psychotherapy sounds like the best bet. What sorts of treatment have you tried for it so far? And is your BDD specific to any area or feature? Or is it more like an ED style BDD? If the latter, the Eating Disorders board might be helpful, too.

But in terms of medications for BDD, I don't know of anything that works without also having some psychotherapy. Then again, that may be because I have a bias in favor of psychotherapy for that sort of thing... My bias may have blinded me to medications that might work...

Good luck.

I'd like to add that your post did work. You need to hit 'refresh' when you're done posting to see your new post.

You might want to try posting this on the main board. That focuses on meds. It's called 'Psychobabble' in the links at the bottom of the page.
