Treatment of borderline personality disorder is multimodal, involving psychotherapy and prescription pharmacotherapy. Prescription drug treatment involves an array of drug classes, including, but not limited to, serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), anxiolytics/benzodiazepines, mood stabilizers, and atypical antipsychotics. Although the borderline personality disorder drug market is extensively genericized, the range of symptoms experienced by patients with borderline personality disorder, together with patients’ heterogeneous responses to treatment, has yielded a complex treatment algorithm in which even brand-only therapies may be used, albeit often as later-line therapies. In this report, we use national patient-level claims data to explore the use of key therapies for borderline personality disorder in both newly diagnosed and recently treated patients.
