There is no formal pharmacological treatment for depersonalization. There are some who sees some benefits form a combination of a anti-depressent and lamotrigine in a dose of 200-300.mg. All somatic interventions done in depersonalization have been very small in size and it makes highly exposed to problems with replication. In normal medical research there is a replication "crisis" of 50% and in depersonalization it might be around the same or slightly higher. Your age speaks in your favor as depersonalization as a disorder typically comes around the age of 15 to 25. There is likely a strong anxiety component that fuels your state and your can work with that and assume that your depersonalization symptoms will subside with the anxiety.

There are some selfhelp books based on that it is a anxiety condition with some obsessive elements in it.

This site and two books has been very used by many and is primarily for panic anxiety and general anxiety. You could look into that.

I have all symptoms except out of body experiences -had those when I had high levels of anxiety. So, it is both depersonalization and derealisation. There is a subgroup of people who almost only have derealisation and no depersonalization. So, most of their emotional life is intact.
