Trials on MDMA for PTSD treatment proven successful

In what has for the most part come back a success in the argument of MDMA’s positive use for the drug for Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), another step in the right direction for getting those in need some help.

The study results are back a year later from people testing MDMA and its effectiveness. The people included in the test ranged from military veterans to police officers in what was said to have given 16 out of 22 relief and no longer considered suffering from PTSD through eight hour sessions which were given to all who took part.

The results showing the most prominent dosage being 75mg, which came to help 86 percent of people at that dose and then followed by 125mg helping 58 percent, to 30mg helping 29 percent of the individuals that took part.

There were some negative outcomes to some who took part who felt they had signs of muscle tension, fatigue, temporary suicidal thoughts amongst some of the symptoms.

“Our study suggests that MDMA might help augment the psychotherapeutic experiences and may have a role to play in the future treatment of PTSD.””However, we would certainly not recommend that individuals try these drugs for the treatment of psychiatric disorders without the support from trained psychotherapists.”, said Dr Allison Feduccia from the┬áMultidisciplinary Association for Psychedelic Studies in Santa Cruz, California.

Sounds like good things happening for people in need and a definite step in the right direction.
