How do you know the Prazosin is working for PTSD nightmares/flashes? I was on it before when I was having a particularly difficult time with my PTSD. I don't remember how it worked or really much of that time period. I'm on a lower dose now about 8ish years later after being off of it for 6ish years. I don't know if it is working. What does it “working” feel like?

      Sleeping through the night and feeling positive during the day were my indicators.

      I can relate to that a lot. I find that it is difficult to know if its helping with nightmares. I typically say if it helped me sleep longer or more restful, then I think it helps. I dont really know how to gauge the dream side of it.

        @Kingswife that makes sense. Now that you say that, I am finally getting more sleep, it is kind of annoying. I went from like 2 hrs to 4.5 hrs a night. Which is a good thing. Except when you're used to going to be at 3am and waking up at 5:30. It was working for me, then again. Sleep is a good thing, as long as I can function lol.
