Customer Question

i have an official diagnosis of Dissociative identity Disorder, Complex multiple ptsd, borderline and chronic major clinical depression disorder. At the moment i am on a medication review. Just now i take 150mg quetiapine, 60mg prozac, 7.5 zopiclone,ans 2-3mg lorazepam. I've discussed with my doctor changing these medications to something effexor xr based but i wondered if there were any medications that you might suggest would be fitting in regard to my diagnosiis

Hi becci,

I am wondering if you have tried psychotherapy and if this has been helpful? The complexity of your diagnoses would be difficult to manage with medication alone. I am thinking of a specific type of therapy that may be helpful, but I would like to know a little more first.

Hi there, thanks for your reply. Aware as i am that medication alone would never be enough i was looking for an opinion as to which meds you may personally recommend were it to be you that was writing the script.

i've tried a lot of therapies with not much success. cbt,dbt,sensorimotorpsychotherapy,emdr,analitic etc. don't really know what other options there are.
My history is very complex and the diagnosed conditions are derived from heavy duty trauma of which conditioning played a large role- thus making therapy harder than average.
any thoughts ?
