Post traumatic stress disorder characteristics and pharmacological response in the veteran population


Comprehensive Psychiatry 26(3): 304-310
Post traumatic stress disorder characteristics and pharmacological response in the veteran population
A retrospective chart review was conducted on all patients with the primary diagnosis of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) admitted over a 1-yr period to a Veterans Administration Medical Center. The data base consisted of 14 Vietnam veterans and 1 World War II veteran. The symptom profile of combat veterans was compared to the established DSM III [Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders-III] criteria for PTSD and the efficacy of pharmacotherapy was compared. The veterans' symptomatology was much more complex than described in DSM III and the currently employed drug therapy appears to be generally inadequate in treating combat-released PTSD.
