> One thing I'm unsure about is how your prazosin dose was determined.

Clinical titration. My starting dose was 3 mg. I actually felt better at this dosage, but I would lose the benefit towards the end of a dosing period. I take prazosin t.i.d. At 6 mg, things evened out. Who knows, I might have responded just as well to 4 or 5 mg. Since the prazosin was so tolerable, I felt that there was no harm in giving myself some headroom with the 6 mg dosage.

> Is 6mg the most you can tolerate without excessive hypotension?

No. I was able to tolerate more, but there was no additional benefit from going higher. I went to 9 mg.

Man, it feels good to feel good. Things are so much brighter and clearer.
