Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) often begins after people experience something devastating, such as combat exposure, a tragic accident, loss or death. Many symptoms of PTSD include depression, heightened anxiety, social withdrawal and flashbacks. However, despite these life-altering symptoms, the most noticeable and challenging side effects can be mood swings. These episodes appear to be unwarranted and can cause real harm both to patients and their loved ones. However, treatment helps people address this disorder and manage its frustrating side effects.
