Had another medical appointment today in order to find ways of attenuating or possibly healing the physical responses associated with triggering events and memories. The doc suggested a medical path, remembering a once “en vogue” and rediscovered treatment for returning veterans:
The medication is known to treat people with a heart condition or high blood pressure. It’s also being applied as “off label” use for patients suffering from symptoms of PTSD. He suggested I familiarize myself with this medication and do my research before making a decision. This is actually beginning to sound plausible to me, provided I don’t display side effects to the medication, which I have often times in the past, e.g. to SSRI’s and anti depressants. But o.k. – there’s a new trace of silverlining. Why not? If any of my readers have personal experience with this form of treatment or know someone who has undergone it, please feel free to comment in detail. Thanks!
