Re: Ptsd

I know most docs will have one try CBT or other types of therapy first, and if it gets too hard, or doesn't seem to be helping, then meds will then be tried. From my own experience, I was put on your typical antidepressants/antianxiety meds. (Celexa, Welbutrin, Prozac, Ativan, etc.) Good luck.

Re: Ptsd

Depends on the symptoms - depression, anxiety, panic attacks, sleeping problems...........
CBT is very beneficial. There are other things to try - Check out the ptds site.
