medication for ASPD

Postby theraven17 » Fri Mar 08, 2019 2:47 am

Can anyone provide information regarding medication for ASPD ? looking for medical research and studies more than personal opinion but both will suffice.

current research suggests minimal effect from most medications and actual studies appear to be limited in their scope and validity.

lithium is suggested to reduce effects and symptons however is not recognised in britain (only currently used in USA penal system, and for BPD in UK)

It's thought that anxiety (and depression) are very often comorbid with ASPD

Addressing that can improve behaviours and quality of life a little

ASPD isn't exactly known for seeking and receiving help, and sadly, tend to be neglected/denied help because their presentation isn't particularly desirable.

Studies have been done on lithium as you say for behaviour management
Along with antipsychotics (aka major tranquilizers) for that same reason
Like you say more in corrections to induce compliance

Until dumbf**kers realize intervention is key and they have to stop letting people slip through the cracks, they won't get far in treating personality disorders

I'll add DOI to a study (or more if I have some) shortly

Also, they have found that people who have ASPD due more to developmental factors respond best to pharmaceutical treatment

Not that current but:

Evidence-based pharmacotherapy for personality disorders
doi:10.1017/S1461145711000071

Treating impulsivity, irritability, and aggression of antisocial personality disorder with quetiapine
Doi:10.1177/0306624x03253027
_________
Can't say I've done more than skim, but this initiative looks interesting:

I haven't been diagnosed with anything. BPD was suspected, but I've posted on here with things strongly hinting at traits of ASPD.

Behavioral intervention at early age is probably the best thing. I don't know for certain as I don't know anyone who has confessed to being a sociopath, but my guess is the older the less effective.

As for me, I take lamotrigine for stabilizing my irritable/angry mood. It has helped some. Before I took it I was consistently having anger outbursts by violently swearing out death threats about various people who I knew. Would happen several times a week.

Didn't confront them directly, but I got noise complaints and realized I needed to control my noise or else risk getting evicted so I requested my psychiatrist something for irritability and anger, which was lamotrigine.

These anger outbursts have decreased with the lamo, but they still occur on some days. The best I've done is not get too noisy so no one hears, but will still say or think violent things. Moderately helpful!

I did take quetiapine (seroquel) as a teenager when I had behavioral issues at home and high school. It may have helped some back then, but it also made me drowsy each morning and wasn't fully functional until noon. Might be helpful for teenagers and kids who are in early stages of developing ASPD. Adults not so sure.
