About Borderline Personality Disorder

BPD affects the ability to control one’s emotions and causes these emotions to be experienced very intensely.

While people with BPD can go through several emotions in a day, they most commonly experience periods of intense sadness, anxiety, or frustration. They may also feel chronically empty and get angry frequently or engage in destructive behaviors. These strong emotional periods can last anywhere from a few hours to a few days and can significantly impact relationships.

Borderline Personality Disorder, or BPD is characterized by Physicians as an ongoing pattern of mood variation and difficulty regulating emotions.1 People who suffer from BPD often experience emotions more intensely than others and find it hard to come back to baseline from those emotions.

It is difficult for people with Borderline Personality Disorder to be alone, usually having an intense fear of abandonment.2 Impulsivity, a poor self-image, and self-regulation are also trademark issues that people with BPD struggle with. In many cases, the symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder lead to self-harm behavior.3

The condition is associated with specific symptoms that often affect a person’s ability to have healthy relationships with family, friends and significant others, succeed in work or school, and the relationship they have with themselves. The signs and symptoms of Borderline Personality Disorder include:

  • Intense fear of abandonment with frantic efforts to avoid it such as suicidal threats or self-harm.
  • Unstable and intense relationships that often switch from “hot-to-cold”.
  • Difficulty establishing a sense of self.
  • Impulsive behavior such as overspending, reckless driving or substance abuse.
  • Suicidal behavior or suicidal threats.
  • Instability due to reactivity (irritability, anxiety, depression).
  • Intense anger or problems controlling temper.
  • Dissociation when in stressful events (out of body feelings or blackout periods).4

It is possible to learn how to manage feelings, reduce impulsivity and have rewarding relationships when proper treatment is sought out from a licensed mental health professional who can conduct therapy and prescribe you any necessary medication.

The Adult BPD Studies is evaluating an investigational drug for adults with BPD.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Clinical Research Study?

A Clinical Research Study (also called a clinical trial) is a medical study that helps to answer important questions about an investigational drug – these may include how well an investigational study drug works for a certain condition. All medications must be tested in clinical research studies before they can be approved and prescribed to patients. 

Participation in the  BPD Studies will involve visits to a study clinic near your home.  

Those who qualify will receive either the investigational drug or a placebo, as well as all call and study-related medical exams and laboratory tests, all at no cost. Compensation for travel may also be available.

In the BPD Studies, participants will be randomly assigned to a study group. You will receive either the investigational drug or a placebo,  Ankylosing Spondylitis on the assigned study group.
