Pharmacological interventions are common in geriatric borderline personality disorder (BPD) and require specific attention to age- and illness-specific considerations. The authors review the current literature on pharmacological treatment of BPD, emphasizing the considerations of age and psychiatric comorbidity. For practicality, pharmacological agents are grouped according to common mechanisms of action and symptom- and syndrome-specific classifications.
