Having a loved one who often acts as a narcissistic sociopathic is not always easy. Do you think you have been exposed to the behaviors of a narcissist, sociopath, or narcissistic sociopath?
What is a Narcissistic Sociopath?
Narcissistic sociopaths have a mental condition that involves an individual exhibiting an exaggerated sense of self-importance, a total lack of concern or empathy for others, and an unrelenting desire to receive admiration or adoration. Narcissistic sociopaths often experience disruptions in both personal and professional relationships. When the behavioral characteristics of a narcissist and a sociopath are combined, the narcissistic sociopath will generally react aggressively to any negative criticism.
Dealing with narcissistic sociopaths can be difficult for anyone, especially when it’s someone who is close to you. It’s important to keep in mind that, although you may not want to hurt the narcissistic sociopath, you should place your own safety and well-being as priority. Although there are no medications dedicated to treat narcissistic sociopathy, there are medications that may be prescribed to treat some of the symptoms. Seeking the help of a professional is necessary to determine if medication management is necessary for narcissistic sociopaths and to evaluate what type of medication, if any, should be prescribed.
How BetterHelp Can Help Narcissistic Sociopaths
If you are concerned about someone who may be a narcissistic sociopath, or if you are experiencing narcissistic sociopath symptoms that make you uncomfortable, reach out to a mental health professional. Talking to a counselor or therapist can help you make sense of narcissistic sociopath traits you are experiencing or witnessing. A mental health professional can help you establish a plan to protect your safety and well-being.
