I have similar conditions n been diagnosed with both n have taken quite a few different medications. I found that Prozac helps tremendously with obsessive, compulsive actions/behaviors. And medicines like "misspelled" ... Sinquan/Doxepin can help BPD. But it's not the same for everyone. What works for one might not work for another. Just don't give up,there is light at the end of the tunnel. It takes time n patience! And keep in mind... that you are not alone n U will get through this. Please give Us an update? Happy Holidays & GB
My friend and i went on a course for OCD which when broken down falls into (A)Intrusive thoughts usually of a weird sexual nature(B)hoarding (C)checking.From what i made out whilst it isn't pleasant having the thoughts we have many thoughts its when you act on these thoughts and that's the problem we worry about acting on them then it just goes into a cycle try to break the cycle,i sometimes clap my hands as i said its most important to break the cycle and of course being in AA there is always someone to share with,hope this has helped.
Hello, a very late reply... I hope you are doing better. I found that Lamictal helped with all my BPD symptoms including obsessive thoughts. It's not like I never worry about stuff but now I am able to find a way to let it go. Good luck x
