Muldoon, I am sorry you have difficulty of this. I have started medicines, has been almost a month now, I think. I have the dose increased some since I first start them, but now, I think they help much better. I have less panic and fear, and that is good, as when I panic, I would go into flashbacks and hear and feel things not there, and do harm at myself. I relate on the sleep. It is only normal, of me, to sleep 3-4 hours a night anyway. But since i begin to deal of all this, one or two hours is normal. My doctor does give me a sleep medicine, the first one we try, it does not work. She gave me another kind, and I try it once so far, and sleep almost 4 hours. But I think sleep is scary for me, and I resist of it, that maybe I make the medicines not work so well.
Thank you for the link to information, I have found things there also. I hope that you do better without the medicines, and stay safe. I wish you well.
