DPD trials/studies in UK?

Just wondering if there is anything happening right now as I would jump at the chance. I've gotten nowhere through the normal means, I've had DPD since 2003 and still get told it's a 'temporary sensation' and I 'probably just dont realise when I'm feeling real' which is ridiculous (as the rare 'good' days attest).
I'm currently not taking any meds so I'm a proverbial clean slate.

Check with Mauricio Sierra's office at the Institute of Psychiatry to see if any new subjects are needed. Let us know what you find out, ok?

Re: DPD trials/studies in UK?

I am trying to get a referal to the DPD Research Unit at Kings College London, as they do CBT for DPD. Try the link below.

I'd also recommend this self help book:
