Basically to me it stated no better than placebo and study lack amount necessary of participants. Also the ages was a bit concerning to me as mentioned 18 years old and if military how? Just my thoughts I know they are using a lot of theraphy for PTSD in military. Why not friend my Son? Love Phillipa

At the bottom of article said that conclusion was mixed that it seemed to work for a smaller percentage then the
researchers had hoped for, and that for a subset there was
inmprovement over placebo. Don't know full implications of study.

Well, I told the doctor, if it (or any other medication) works for a tiny subset, and one happens to be among that tiny minority, well, that's o.k. It just won't be assigned to a standard treatment protocol.

Frankly, the terminology of the study makes me dizzy, so.... I may be very well misinterpreting :-/
