With the exception of new findings with ketamine and mixed results with prazosin, there have been very few encouraging new developments regarding novel medications for PTSD for the past 30 years. This issue of the Research Quarterly highlights exciting new pharmacologic targets, including psychedelic-assisted psychotherapy, and briefly reviews studies of drugs that show a positive signal at 4 weeks but not endpoint, older compounds, head-to-head psychotherapy vs. pharmacotherapy studies, and prophylactic interventions aimed to prevent PTSD.
