Prazosin, when taken throught the day, might be capable of reducing not only nightmares, but also the daytime symptoms - especially depression and anxiety. I received a significant antidepressant effect at 30 mg/day t.i.d. It is a remarkably clean drug. My only complaint is that it killed my sex-drive - which seems to have peristed for over a year since I stopped taking it. I don't know if there is a cause-and-effect that produces a residual loss of libido after the drug is discontinued. Still, if you can't find anything that works for you, prazosin should be near the top of your list.

Prazosin blocks several types of NE alpha-1 receptors in the brain. My favored explanation is that its positive effects are due to NE alpha-1b antagonism.
