Hmm, My PTSD has come with alot of issues including opiate addiction. I am now on Methadone 60mg daily however my PTSD is not any better and feel that I traded one drug (Percocet) for another being Methadone. I have triggers that I can't describe or know why they cause me to relapse into my PTSD but it sux. I also take Lexapro for depression and Vyvanse for ADHD. The Vyvanse helps keep my mind from wandering and keeps me focused on one thought at a time. This is a hard hurdle to jump and so far have just fallen and stuck in the same spot day after day. I am now unemployed, no health insurance and due to my past health issues cannot be insured, facing foreclosure, etc.
I just wish their was a miracle that could put all of us sufferers back on track and in the game as it sux sitting on the sidelines of life wondering what my next move will be.
