Awhile back, a few psychologists used the term "development PTSD" to describe the effects of chronic trauma during childhood. I had success with prozosin (Minipress) 30 mg/day (10 mg. b.i.d.). I might go back to it. I stopped taking it in an effort to streamline my regime. Prazosin was first used for PTSD as a treatment for nightmares as a single 3 mg dose immediately before bedtime. However, a few doctors have reported that taking higher dosages (up to 40 mg/day) throughout the day effectively treated daytime depression and anxiety.

Interesting about prazosin for depression. I was given it to combat anger and insomnia from despiramine, but I was warned it could make depression worse.

Just curious, what is your current regimen?
