Today’s question is: How to manage the comorbidities of PTSD? Here is a summary of this episode: Screen for substance use and avoid prescription drugs like benzodiazepines.

Prescribe paroxetine with caution in women of childbearing potential. Download a PDF of this interview here Become a premium member of the Psychopharmacology Institute
