In brief: Always?

No medication has been proven effective in the trwatment of bpd.
However, medications are prescribed to diminish some symptoms of the disoder, such as mood swings, dep, anxiety, impulsivity, etc., bpd is more of a psychologically-based condition, rather than a physiologically- based disoder. Consequently, intensive long-term therapy is generally the treatment indicated, although meds play a role.
