The only significant research leading to actual treatment is not at Mt. Sinai (been there, swollowed the pills Dr. Simeon gave me) but at King's College in London.

Lamictal+SSRI are to date the most effective medical treatment combo found, with only about 40% success rate; however DPD does respond well to CBT, diversion techniques, and breathing exercises (to lower the seizure threshold.)

I've had dp/dr for a while, and I agree with the assements that it's related to sleep cycle disruption and to chronic hyperventilation leading to lowered levels of Oxygen delivered to the brain. my 2 cents.

> No need to debate this condition. Mount Sanai Hospital is the leading medical facility in the US doing clinical research. It is a classified mental illness and well defined. You can google mt Sanai DP...they have treatment available as well as research. Trying to debate cause and effect on this board will result in little. THe best thing to do is seek help if you fit into this classification.
