18. Meta-analysis supports psychotherapies as first-choice PTSD treatments
from Psychiatric News
From Sept. 3:
A network meta-analysis published in JAMA Psychiatry that compared various treatment strategies for posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) concluded that while psychotherapy and medications are comparable in the short term, a psychotherapy-based approach is superior to medication in the long term. The study findings support the conclusions of many professional guidelines, which recommend psychotherapy as the frontline treatment for PTSD, with medications as a secondary option.
