Hi all,

 

Just thought I'd share with you a list of possible meds, treatments, therapies for DP/DR. As I have had Depersonalization disorder for quite some time, I have collected a lot of information on the disorder and its possible treatments over several years. Below is what I have found from various websites, blogs, forums and youtube videos over the years.

 

BUT please check with your doctor or psychiatrist before going ahead and trying any of these.

 

I hope that this list will be of help to someone. Hopefully there will be something that works for you.

 

Medications and supplements:

Abilify/aripiprazole

Abilify/aripiprazole combined with Viibryd

Adderall or Adderall XR

Benzodiazepines

Citalopram

Clomipramine/anafranil

Clonazepam

Desipramine

Gingko biloba

Klonopin

L-Theanine

l tyrosine

Lactobacilus Reuteri

Lamotrigine

Lexapro

Liquid SAM-E

Marplan

Modafinil

Modalert

Modiadal

Naloxone

Naltrexone

Noopept

Olanzapine

Phenazepam

Phosphadyl serine

Provigil

Ritalin

Sertraline

Sulpiride

Trintellix

Wellbutrin

 

Therapies:

 

EMDR

The Linden Method

Somatic experiencing

Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) or Repetitive Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (rTMS)

 

AND also a clean diet (fruit and veg, less junk food!) and exercise - yoga, tai chi, other lower intensity type exercises. DP/DR sufferers will benefit from less intense exercise due to the emotional/physical drain and burnout DP/DR sufferers go through. See Adrenal Repair youtube channel for more on this.

DP wasn't my primary diagnosis.  It was one of many symptoms of recurrent major depression.

The treatment that resolved my DP was ECT.  It also resolved my recurrent depressive disorder and all of

its associated symptoms.

I recommend looking into and researching "Kanna" aka "Sceletium tortuosum" as well. Traditional Medicinals sells a tea for it called "Cup of Sunshine". Ain't the prettiest smelling thing in the world, as it is a fermented, I believe, but it is easy to adjust to after brewing.
