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.

The effectiveness of post-traumatic stress disorder treatment strongly depends on the chosen method and may differ from one patient to another. According to statistics, 41% to 95% of patients lost the PTSD diagnosis after going through prolonged exposure (PE). Per cognitive processing therapy (CPT), 30% to 97% achieved the same result according to different studies. The rates for cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT) range from 61% to 82.4%. When it comes to post-traumatic stress disorder treatment with medications, about 60% of patients respond well to antidepressants in the SSRI class.

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.

The costs depend on the chosen treatment, its duration, and the type of medications if prescribed. At MEDvidi, the cost of the initial appointment is $150 and follow-ups cost $99 each.

PTSD Assessment

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:
  • Intrusion
  • Avoidance
  • Negative symptoms
  • Hyperarousal

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.

The most common PTSD symptoms include recurrent thoughts and memories of the traumatic event, flashbacks and nightmares, social isolation and avoiding behavior, fears and irritability, and attachment issues. Often, people with PTSD feel guilt, numbness, and distress. In severe cases, dissociation and personality alterations may develop.
The time needed to overcome PTSD symptoms depends a lot on the severity of the disorder, its duration before receiving treatment, personality features, and the support of loved ones. Even though significant improvement can be seen in a few weeks of treatment, it can take from 6 months to a few years to overcome the condition.
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.

What can be included in the treatment plan:
PTSD Therapy

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
Medications

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

Managing PTSD: Therapy Techniques

Cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT)
Being strongly focused on thinking patterns, emotions, and behavior, CBT helps PTSD patients in several ways. It allows one to determine how trauma affected them and what irrational beliefs they have because of it. During cognitive-behavioral therapy sessions, patients can rewrite their associations with the traumatic event and modify their response to triggers.
Prolonged Exposure (PE)
Prolonged exposure consists of imaginary exposure (working on traumatic memories) and in vivo exposure (identifying real-life situations the patient avoids because of PTSD and starting to take part in such activities again). PE proved to be effective in people with different types of traumatic experiences but requires more dedication from the patient’s side.
Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing (EMDR)
EMDR is a form of psychotherapy that helps patients overcome their traumatic memories and feelings by processing them in a specific way. The therapist uses certain hand movements to help a patient focus and reprocess their beliefs, sensations, and self-destructive thoughts until their effect on the patient is significantly reduced.

Self-care is an essential part of PTSD treatment, including relaxation techniques, connecting with family and friends, regular physical activity, journaling, and other self-help methods. However, with professional support, you are more likely to boost the speed of recovery and make your treatment path smoother.
Yes, MEDvidi doctors are certified to make a diagnosis and offer post-traumatic stress disorder treatment online. To get diagnosed, you have to attend a consultation with a mental health professional to go through a symptoms examination.
If PTSD symptoms are so severe they make the patient unable to work, PTSD can be considered a disability if certain medical criteria are met.
Antidepressants such as paroxetine and sertraline are usually chosen as pharmacological PTSD treatment. By regulating certain neurotransmitters in the brain, they affect one’s mood positively.
PTSD treatment can take more or less time depending on the severity of symptoms, the intensity of trauma, and one’s readiness to go through the healing process with strong dedication and consistency. It requires even more effort if the patient has complex PTSD. Still, the results will be achieved if the individual sticks to the treatment plan and has proper support.
