Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include:
Counseling may be beneficial for people with dependent personality disorder. Counseling sessions focus on learning how to manage your anxiety and be more assertive.
In some cases, medications, such as tricyclic antidepressants, monoamine oxidase inhibitors, or alprazolam, may help manage symptoms. For most patients, medications only provide a minimal amount of symptom relief.
Other treatments, such as group therapy and social skills training, can help you manage symptoms.
