This medication has shown to be effective in treating severe nightmares in children and people with PTSD symptoms. Veterans have also been treated successfully at Seattle's VA Puget Sound Health Care System (VAPSHCS) for sleep disturbance related to PTSD. Doses are lower for this purpose than for control of blood pressure.

Side effects of prazosin include dreaming while awake or hallucinations of wakefulness while falling asleep on the medication.

This info is from WIKIPedia Drifter.....I am not a doctor, but maybe a
talk with your doctor and an adjustment in your medication might be beneficial.....

Wishing you the very best of luck
