Hi Peter,

For me, Buspar seemed to work quite quickly, but I was on Zoloft/sertraline, and I was also taking amitriptyline. It seemed the higher dose worked best. It maintained it anti-anxiety effect, but lost it's pro-sexual effects.

One combo I have heard of is an MAOI + Buspar + a dopamine agonist. I don't know if any of the dopamine agonists would be safe with Marplan or any MAOI? I have never heard of contraindications between them. I guess the only concern would be blood pressure. Maybe Scott could chime in? I will add his name in the subject line.

Both Prazosin and clonidine have shown benefits against nightmares. Again, I am a little unsure as to how to proceed. I do know for a fact that some benzo's also work against vivid dreams/nighmares. I get those occasionally too, and I know how disturbing they can be.
