Post traumatic stress disorder and dating
Our highest priority project is funding clinical trials of 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine (MDMA) as a tool to assist psychotherapy for the treatment of posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD).Preliminary studies have shown that MDMA in conjunction with psychotherapy can help people overcome PTSD, and possibly other disorders as well.PTSD is diagnosed when the stress symptoms following exposure have persisted for over a month.Delayed expression of PTSD can occur if symptoms arise six months or more following the onset of trauma.Many people with PTSD tend to re-experience aspects of the traumatic event especially when they are exposed to events or objects reminiscent of the trauma.
In laboratory studies, pure MDMA has been proven sufficiently safe for human consumption when taken a limited number of times in moderate doses. The program is designed to address urgent and life-threatening conditions in patients who do not currently have promising treatment options. MAPS does not have an Expanded Access program at this time but will be applying to FDA in early 2019.For-profit pharmaceutical companies are not interested in developing MDMA into a medicine because the patent for MDMA has expired.The idea of using MDMA to assist psychotherapy of any kind for any specific clinical indication has long been in the public domain. Participate: MDMA Studies In MDMA-assisted psychotherapy, MDMA is only administered a few times, unlike most medications for mental illnesses which are often taken daily for years, and sometimes forever.PTSD is frequently accompanied by depression, substance abuse, or anxiety disorders.When other conditions are appropriately diagnosed and treated, the likelihood of successful treatment increases.
