Arm Intervention/treatment
Placebo Comparator: Placebo
Placebo adjunct to open-label treatment with a commercially available approved treatment for PTSD (PAR/SER)
Drug: Placebo
Once daily, tablets, orally

Experimental: Brexpiprazole
Brexpiprazole adjunct to open-label treatment with a commercially available approved treatment for PTSD (PAR/SER). Brexpiprazole dosing was 1mg/day for one week, followed by 2mg/day for 3 weeks. Thereafter the dose was flexible and could be adjusted from 1 to 3 mg/day.
Drug: Brexpiprazole
1 to 3 mg/day, once daily dose, tablets, orally




Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. PTSD Symptoms Using CAPS-2 Total Score [ Time Frame: Period 2: Baseline to Week 12 (of randomized period) ]
    Clinician-Administered PTSD Scale Part 2 (CAPS-2): 17 items in criteria B, C and D (Corresponding to CAPS-2) will be administered to provide a total score. They are rated on a 5 point scale for frequency from 0 (never or none) to 4 (daily or almost every day), and intensity from 0 (none) to 4 (extreme). The sum of the 17 items gives a toal score ranging from 0 to 136, with a higher score indicating greater symptom severity.


Secondary Outcome Measures :
  1. Global Clinical Impression Severity of Illness (CGI-S) Score [ Time Frame: Period 2: Baseline to Week 12 (of randomized period) ]
    Clinical Global Impression - Severity of Illness (CGI-S) The CGI-S provides the clinician's impression of the patient's current state of mental illness. The clinician uses his or her clinical experience of this patient population to rate the severity of the patient's current mental illness on a 7-point scale ranging from 1 (Normal - not at all ill) to 7 (among the most extremely ill patients).
