I'm looking for some information and/or an opinion reguarding PTSD and medications that control the physical aspects from PTSD?

Asked by emc2rd (10points) April 18th, 2009

I’m have PS and finally found the right healthcare team that pulled me out of a six year psychosis. Since then I’ve noticed that the medications I take keep me from crying, anger, and stress or worry. Since these medications supress my feelings and physical emotions should I become aware when it comes to my body and the inability to feel or react to certian situation(s) that cause crying, anger, etc.? Both sides of my families have congential heart problems so, does it affect my body to where I could have a heart attack, stroke, etc. from the medications supressing such feelings/emotions?

I would recommend searching online for basic information and then asking your health care professional about your concerns.

I found Luvox helped me a lot, through PTSD.

Can you tell me a little bit more about your diagnosis, and about the kinds of medications you’re taking? You mentioned that you have PS, and also that you experienced psychosis. Are these other diagnoses, or are you talking about PTSD when you bring those up?

Also, can you tell me more about your concerns about the medications that you’re on? Are you worried that they’re going to cause a heart attack or stroke, or are you worried that you won’t be able to detect early warning symptoms?

Regardless, I am glad to hear you found a team that was able to help you, and I hope they continue to take good care of you.
