Do you think people who lie all the time about everything could ever be cured? I mean, like pathological liars for instance, do you think there will ever be medication that could stop them from lying? I know a couple people who lie about pretty much every thing and anything so I was just wondering to myself if there could ever be a cure for them.

  • Not medication but possibly a therapist. I think they need to dig deep within themselves and find out why they lie about everything. They have to search who they are inside, so they stop falsifying who they are on the outside.

  • Maybe with some intense psychotherapy. I know people like that, and I don't think they could stop on their own. It's just part of their personality by now.

  • Medication, no. Therapy, most definitely.

  • Yes, I believe they can be cured... not by medication, but there is a root of why this person is a pathological liar.... it will probably take some serious counselling and accountability to get that person to stop. They probably lie out of a protection mechanism for themselves... or because they desire something, possibly attention... like I said, there is a root of why they do what they do... you have to figure out what that root is before the problem can be fixed.
