MDMA and Post Traumatic Stress Disorder

The use of MDMA in the treatment of post traumatic stress disorder has recently been approved by the FDA so we’ll take a look at some of the studies that seem to imply that this controversial development is beneficial to those who suffer from it, particularly combat veterans, which includes me. See for the full article. An article by a combat veteran discussing the potential risks and benefits of MDMA-assisted therapy for PTSD. The author incorrectly states that the FDA has already approved the use of MDMA as a treatment for PTSD, which is most likely the result of confusion regarding the approval of the next phase of the MAPS-supported MDMA trial. Otherwise, the article is an honest and balanced assessment, and a valuable addition to the other PTSD-related articles on the Bright Hub mental health page.
