Aims

Inclusion criteria were diagnosis BPD. Medication was assessed according to the documentation at discharge or during outpatient care according to the transcript record.

Results

In most cases are BPD patients treated according to current guidelines. The treatment consists of SSRI antidepressants, anticonvulsants and second-generation of antipsychotics. Problem can be considered in some cases with medication dosage, combination, administration of benzodiazepine anxiolytics, hypnotics.

Conclusion

BPD patients are treated according to current recommendations. Inpatients are more medicated than outpatients. The reason is probably in relation with the severity of the symptoms.
