Last time I posted it was to share how well cannabis in a 1:1 ration worked for me (that means half thc and half CBD). While I still absolutely stand by that and recommend micro dosing this type of cannabis, I know it's not accessable to everyone, so I want to share the prescription drugs that have worked just as well for me. I currently use propranolol and Zoloft and feel it is just as effective as the cannabis once was. Apparently, the high blood pressure that can accompany anxiety can trigger fight or flight which for us with DPDRD means dissociation. To be clear I don't have high blood pressure I'm just artificially lowering my BP a little to avoid triggering dissociation that occurs at the healthy high end of my range, and it works. On it's own propranolol wasn't enough though to match the therapeutic effect of cannabis, but combined with a high dose of Zoloft (25 mg) it's really just the same. So my advise would be to up that antidepressant, and try propranolol. I had taken Zoloft at a lower dose in the past for depression, and it never touched my dissociation. If you want to try cannabis do that. The only reason I switched was because the illegality of my treatment was stressing me the fuck out, but now I have no sex drive, so be warned. P.S. you can just tell people you have PTSD to get accomodations. People understand that, plus their frequently comorbid anyways.
