Post Traumatic Stress Disorder Can Be Prevented?

rvard University psychiatrist, conducted a small study with 10 participants and gave them this drug or placebo and analyzed the effect. He found that after three weeks when the patients were asked to listen to their traumatic events those who had the drug showed fewer stress symptoms.

Hence McGaugh is trying to convince the federal government to fund for further studies. Meanwhile Brunet and Pitman are conducting experiments in Montréal including participants who were traumatized as long as 20 or 30 years ago by child abuse, sexual assault or a serious accident.

Such memories don’t decay and researchers are asking the patients to explain about their experience and then administer the drug, Propranolol to prevent storage of these events in the blunt memory.

But this treatment also has a lot of disadvantages like it cannot be given to soldiers and rape assault victims. In case of soldiers this cannot be administered as it would curb survival instincts. Hence they can be given when they are behind the lines or when returning home. In case of rape victims they would not be able to testify against their attackers.

But Pitman tells that this drug does not erase the memory or create amnesia. The important thing to know about this drug is it doesn't put a hole in their memory. It doesn't create amnesia. Propranolol should be given within a day or two of trauma to prevent PTSD.

Klein, the Saint Louis University psychiatrist, appreciates the drug’s usefulness but is still skeptical about the benefits of the drug. But further studies are needed to completely solve the problems faced by the PTSD patients.
