Treating Sleep Disturbance in Posttraumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD)

We are seeking research volunteers who are having difficulty sleeping and have post-traumatic stress disorder.

We want to assess the effectiveness of a medication for sleep disturbance. People who qualify will complete some paper and pencil tests, interviews, and lab tests.

During this 12-week study, you will receive either the medication or a placebo (an inactive pill) and be assessed for changes in your sleep.
