Treatment options for PTSD: Medication

Posted on July 8, 2015 3:05 pm under Car Accidents

Post traumatic stress disorder, or PTSD, can affect not just your mental wellness, but your overall health as well. Individuals with PTSD often suffer from alcoholism, substance abuse, and eating disorders. As such, seeking medical help can help you prevent complications that may profoundly impact your life.

Treatment for PTSD is usually a combination of therapy and medications. When you have PTSD, your doctor may prescribe one or more of these drugs:

  • Anti-anxiety drugs – to relieve the feeling of stress and anxiety
  • Anti-depressants – to help improve symptoms of depression
  • Prazosin – to help deal with sleeplessness and nightmares

If you have developed PTSD after being involved in a traumatic car accident caused by someone else’s recklessness, you have the right to fight for justice and compensation for all the damages you have sustained.
