Question

Living with PTSD

How long does post-traumatic stress disorder last?

A Answers (1)

  • The intensity of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) will lessen over time. Getting treatment for symptoms as soon as possible may stop it from becoming a long-term condition. Continued psychotherapy and drug treatment can help you get better. Even with treatment, some people remain disabled from the symptoms caused by the traumatic event.
