What is the most effective treatment for PTSD symptoms?

Flashbacks, nightmares, difficulty sleeping, and feeling on edge: These common PTSD symptoms can be hard to shake. And they can get in the way of living your life. If you or someone you care about has these symptoms, treatment can make all the difference. It may not happen overnight. But it can be life changing.

So why do so many people with PTSD symptoms suffer? There are different reasons. It can feel hopeless. It can take patience to wait for results. And the first treatment you try may not be the right fit.

What to consider when choosing treatment:

How will it fit into my life?

It can vary. Some treatment options involve taking a pill daily or going to weekly therapy sessions. With Freespira, you complete the entire treatment program right at home in two sessions a day over the course of a month. During each session, a sensor samples your breathing and provides real-time feedback.

What side effects are there?

Some treatments can have side effects. Some go away in time. Others may be lasting. Many people who use Freespira say that having little-to-no side effects is one reason they choose it.

How long will it take to feel better?

Some mental health treatments can have long wait lists just to get started. Depending on where you live, it can take months to get an appointment with a therapist or psychiatrist (a doctor specializing in mental health). It can also take weeks or even months to feel the effects of some meds. Freespira can be shipped within days of enrolling, and the program takes 28 days. Many patients say they notice an improvement in their symptoms sooner.

How much does it cost?

Some treatments require ongoing costs for prescription refills or copays. Freespira is covered for some health plans and their dependents aged 13 and over. If your insurance does not cover Freespira, let us know and we can discuss payment options.
