issues related to PTSD
Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition occurring as a response to a traumatic experience. It may develop in children and adults who have gone through or witnessed terrifying or life-threatening events.
Psychotherapy treatment for PTSD includes 8 to 12 weekly sessions 60 to 90 minutes each. However, the post-traumatic stress disorder treatment plan can be prolonged up to 30 sessions during 6 months. Some patients will need about 18 months to achieve relief.
If medications are prescribed, patients most often take them for at least 12 months and withdrawal requires at least 4-6 weeks.
PTSD assessment at MEDvidi includes a detailed interview with a trained therapist. It can also be supplemented with answering specific PTSD assessment questionnaires. All this will help to determine whether you have mild or severe PTSD or complex post-traumatic stress disorder (CPTSD).
The doctor will examine the four categories of PTSD symptoms:
- Negative symptoms
Complex PTSD or CPTSD may develop in people who had chronic trauma or had frightening experiences repeatedly. When it comes to complex PTSD assessment, the doctor also examines emotional, cognitive, behavioral, interpersonal, and somatic symptoms and issues.
Depression, anxiety, substance abuse, and other mental disorders often go hand in hand with PTSD. Therefore, you may have to take other tests and psychological assessments in addition to the PTSD assessment scale if the symptoms of these conditions are observed.
Doctors choose the most suitable relaxation techniques for every patient to overcome acute and chronic PTSD symptoms. It could be deep breathing exercises, meditation and mindfulness, yoga, implementing basic healthy habits, art therapy, and other options.
Your PTSD Treatment Plan
Seeking help is not a sign of weakness but a sign of strength.
We know what helps PTSD patients and will determine a personalized PTSD treatment plan for you.
Online PTSD therapy helps the patient to face their trauma in a safe environment and learn to deal with it. It also includes working on emotional and behavioral issues resulting from the disorder.
Common PTSD therapy types:
- Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) and trauma-focused cognitive-behavioral therapy (TF-CBT)
- Prolonged Exposure therapy (PE)
- Cognitive Processing Therapy (CPT)
- Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
- Psychodynamic Psychotherapy
Currently, only a few antidepressants of the SSRI class (selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors) are FDA-approved to treat PTSD:
Other medications prescribed for PTSD off-label include SNRIs (serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors), atypical antipsychotic agents, anticonvulsants, tricyclic antidepressants, and monoamine oxidase inhibitors (MAOIs).
It is normal for people with PTSD to be scared, sad, and doubt the effectiveness of treatment. Still, you have nothing to worry about: 89% of MEDvidi patients notice an improvement in their mental health within 8–12 weeks.
The only thing you have to start with to see the results is sticking to the PTSD treatment plan given to you by your doctor
