no established medication treatments for DID
Many DID patients are mis-diagnosed and then given excessive medication in order to calm the ‘mood swings’ and anxiety. To quieten the voices and aid sleep for instance. However this often involves prescription of Antipsychotics, Antidepressants, Mood stabilisers and sleeping tablets.
These are not drugs recommended for DID.
In fact there are no established medication treatments for DID. Sometimes medication can be used to treat co-occurring disorders such as anxiety, depression or sleep disorders alongside Psychotherapy as the mainstay of therapy.
It is preferable for a person who suffers from chronic traumatisation to be referred to see a Psychiatrist who is familiar with psychophysiological complexities of traumatisation and who is willing to work alongside a Psychotherapist.
