I provably have PTSD with nightmares as a major feature, and I take Prazosin but I wasn’t prescribed it for my PTSD.

I also have pretty high blood and when we were talking about medication I asked my doctor if I could try Prazosin first, since it also treats nightmares and he said yes. My nightmare problem got way better when I started taking it. My blood pressure has been a little more stubborn.

However doses for high blood pressure are much higher than for nightmares so I can’t give you thoughts on how it would be doses or anything it PTSD was the primary reason for taking it.
