I guess there is not much people with ptsd because I have not received a reply on my post.
I am not sure what will help but I can feel your pain on your lose. I lost my brother back in 1993, he was stabbed in the heart and I get those same feelings you do. It's hard and it will remain to stay hard for years but it get easier. Let me know if you find your answer because I am thinking about requestion the same thing for depression and anxiety.

I take clonopen for sleeping which seems to lost it's effect. I tried Ativan as well and it helps everyonce and a while but not good enough. I noticed when I drink alcohol I dont have that issue with PTSD but once wants to drink alcohol just to go out everytime.
I am going to ask my doctor about Lexapro tomorrow...
