    It's why many of us are here. Lot's of different symptoms that amount to the same thing ... stress.

    Generally speaking, medications for mood disorders are only intended for as a short term solution whilst suffers look into therapy to deal with unresolved issues; unless of course your suffering from schizophrenia or bi-polar. (depending on severity) Other than taking medications, did you doctor suggest anything else or are you looking to do something to compliant your medicated aids for your post traumatic stress?

    What kind of events triggered your trauma? It's hard for most people to deal with which is why many keep taking pills for the rest of their lives.

    I have pets 3 whippets and 4 rats as well as 3 fish tanks of various sizes in our home so I'd say that its safe to say people with ptsd like to care for pets

    wowwwwwwwww whippets are excellent dogs, so graceful. Rats ; I am scared of them, I had probably read to much about them, They are highly intelligent and adaptable animals. That's very good, somehow people with PSTD are excellent owners treat their animals with compassion. So next is meditation, you u can do it. maybe not meditation by yourself but you could use quided one. Even my hubby after awful automobile accident , tried to meditate and it was helping him to control his PSTD.
    There is a lot of herbs you could use. Let me know if you need the info about it,
    I am finding that 400 mg of magnesium biglycinate helps me a lot with my insomnia, YOu probably seen me posting about Jon Kabat-Zinn

    I was diagnosed with PTSD also. I know the struggle and it is a very serious condition. I suffer a lot every day but my meds help me out alot. I decided to make a website based on mental health because I wanted to show people some of the remedies I used before I had my medication to help.

    Check it out, I would really like feedback on what i can improve! I hope it helps some people in the process!!
