Post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and alcohol use disorders (AUD) commonly co-occur and can be challenging to treat from a pharmacologic perspective. This session will focus on enhancing attendees’ understanding of the overlapping pathophysiology of alcohol use disorder (AUD) and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). Further, first-line treatment options for these disorders will be reviewed, as well as newer evidence focusing on the use of prazosin and topiramate.
