Dealing With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder


Dealing With Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

A major symptom of Post Traumatic Stress Disorder is actually the very real feeling that they are experiencing the same event over and over.

There has been a lot of talk about Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) involving military troops so I thought I would write a little to inform you of what exactly it is.

What is PTSD and Its Symptoms?

PTSD occurs when someone goes through severe trauma and feels intense fear, horror or helplessness.

When a person goes through such a horrible event, they are often unable to resume their lives normally.

It often leaves them unable to deal with daily routines because they are stuck with terrible memories that they cannot shake.

Diagnosing PTSD

Your doctor or psychologist will ask you many questions regarding the symptoms you have been experiencing. They will also be interested in what event you think caused the PTSD in the first place. Details about the event you experienced will be very important to them.

It might be really hard to share your experiences with the doctor because it means you have to relive them, once again.

You really need to go through with it, though, so you can get back to your normal life.

Keep in mind that you might experience symptoms just a few days after the event but the doctor will not officially diagnose you until the symptoms have persisted for a month or more.

PTSD Treatment Options

There are many different options available for the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder. Most doctors will not recommend using heavy psychological drugs right after the event, though.

They might recommend less strong drugs for their sedative effect. Using drugs has the potential of making a person feel like they do not need to work as hard to get through the trauma. This can actually complicate things in the future.

Some of the drugs that are commonly prescribed for PTSD are Xanax, Valium, Klonopin, Librium, Prozac, Paxil, Tofranil, Lexapro, Catapres, Tenex and Inderal.

Make sure that you are fully aware of any side effects and ask your doctor a lot of questions.

Some of these drugs are extremely addictive and the side effects can be quite severe.

However, prescription drugs are not the only remedies available which will help with the symptoms and stress associated with PTSD.
