As a veteran being treated aggressively for PTSD I cannot say enough about how critical the understanding of the physiology of PTSD is for effective treatment. I applaud the advancements in treatment and research implemented by the Veterans' Administration since 2010 to reduce the incidence of suicide and promote recovery for suffering veterans. I am appreciative of the coordination between the VA and local integrative behavioral medicine programs to increase the variety of effective treatments for veteran PTSD sufferers. It took about 24 months to find the right mix of medication for me to stop my suicidal/homicidal ideation, but the side effects and adverse reactions I endured made it difficult to continue taking the medications, and I had to seriously consider stopping the medication and risk the return of my lethal thinking so that I had some reliable ability to function.
