This diagnosis has only come about 3 yrs ago. I've always suffered from major depression since youth & have been treated for such. For the PTSD specifically I've only been prescribed Prazosin at bedtime for my night terrors. Are there other medications that anyone feels was or is helpful?
Newbie here"... I've been diagnosed having PTSD w/ generalized anxiety disorder?

Just a word of caution about asking for opinions about meds. I had and did get widely different opinions and they forced me to make the decision myself. People experiences are great and do help in almost equal proportions to what I hear from my doc and read on sites that have no vested interest in promoting a med. I did get some bad advice too though and this led me to asking for credentials of anyone who had a strong opinion either way.
Medicine or pills only treat the symptoms you really need to address the psychological side of the root problems the reasons why you have ptsd etc are obviously shock and continued traumatic events you need to go deep although I know this maybe hard and difficult but from personal experience you can beat it
