Abstract

As our understanding of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) improves, sotoo should our psychopharmacological approaches to treating this common and sometimes disabling condition. Treatment with drugs can lead to improvement in PTSD. The most effective drugs seem to be those that have their action on the serotonergic system, such as the selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors and the monoamine oxidase inhibitors. Higher dosages and longer periods of treatment seem to be required in many cases for adequate therapeuticresponse. Here we examine the main groups of agents used in the pharmacological treatment of this disorder. With a background of relatively few randomized therapeutic trials and others beset by limitations, it remains difficult currently to draw confident conclusions in the approach to drug management.
