Our expert says:
Well, highly skilled psychotherapy is probably best for a Bordrline Personality problem, and its not at all clear that any meds are solutions for this problem ( though obviously treatment with meds as needed for other conditions is appropriate, as BDL doesn't mane you immune from having other problems as well ). Bipolar does ned caeful medication, with a mood stabilizer especially, such as Lamictin. Prozac doesn't in itself cause any brain damage, but it might not be the best thing for someone with bipolar disorder. I can't kep track of the shrinks even in Pretoria, as regards what they do, and which special interests they have. Try looking at the public ssection of the SASOP ( Society of Psychiatrists ) website, www.sasop.co.za ( or is it org ?)
