My Traumatic Stress - A New All Trauma Community If you're having a difficult time with a minor or major traumatic event, not PTSD specific, we now support all trauma types at My Traumatic Stress community. No diagnosis required. I was just wondering...I know there was a poll conducted for who takes and who does not medication for PTSD, but how many of you just stick with diet and exercise for PTSD? I do not take medications for PTSD, but I do exercise and find that it helps a lot. I use to take Zoloft for depression and anxiety pre -PTSD diagnosis, and I did not like how it made me feel (felt like I was in a fog), gained a lot of weight. I am not a 100% sure, but I also have a pituitary tumor from possibly taking a SSRI (Zoloft), so I am afraid to take medication for the times I may need to take something for depression and anxiety. Any suggestions?
