EMDR (Eye Movement Desensitization and Reprocessing) is a more effective treatment than anti-depressant

A new study shows that EMDR beats the anti-depressant, paroxetine, in reducing symptoms of PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome) in male survivors of war trauma.

Dr. Asad Ullah Jan, the researcher noted that “in Pakistan, all treatments, including medications, are free of charge.” “But EMDR is becoming more acceptable, especially because it has no side effects.”

In fact, “Results showed that 90% of the EMDR group had a treatment response vs 36% of the paroxetine group.”
