The US Veterans Affairs (VA)/Department of Defense (DoD) Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) Clinical Practice Guidelines provide evidence-based pharmacologic treatment recommendations. Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) and serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs) are considered first-line medications. Benzodiazepines are relatively contraindicated with a warning that they may cause harm. This population-based study is the first to describe prescribing patterns for active duty service members (ADSMs) diagnosed with PTSD.
