Some years ago I did some research on this matter of self-cutting, so I maybe understand it a bit better than some. Although I keep my eyes open for new treatment developments, I have seen no good studies or research about ANY medicaton which blocks endorphins being successful in treating this problem, proving to be effective. Your psychiatrist may be planning, as is reasonable, to try a medication not yet proved to reliably help most people with this condition, based on a theory of his. IT may indeed help you, and could be worth trying. But there is not as yet a generally recognized drug reatment for self-cutting.
If you go ahead and try this, give it a fair chance, and do, please, return to this forum with a fresh message, and let us know if and how it helps you, as such information could be useful to others.
