A few weeks ago I wrote a post about my struggle with nightmares, and said I was going to look into use of Prozasin, an anti-hypertensive drug sometimes used to diminish PTSD related nightmares.

I did just that, and began using it about 2 weeks ago. So far so good. I have had one nightmare since starting it, and that nightmare was very tame. I did not wake up screaming or sweating. No racing heartbeat, or rapid breathing. Maybe its just a placebo effect, but who cares? I'm sleeping.

Here is a link to some infomation for anyone interested. Prozasin Relieves Nightmares and Sleep Disturbance in PTSD
WARNING: Prozasin is in a catagory of drugs known as Alpha Blockers. Alpha Blockers have been known to sometimes cause delayed ejaculation and/or orgasm in some men. In some cases the reaction is a complete inability to ejaculate and/or orgasm, regardles of the type or duration of sexual stimulation. This effect usually goes away when the drug is discontinued.

In my case, 1) I already have that effect from taking anti-depressants. 2) I haven't had sex in years anyway. and 3) Right now I'd gladly trade orgasms that I'm not having anyway, for nightmare-free sleep.

Hope someone finds this helpful.

"Amen" to that...especially when they are CSA-driven nightmares; or as I call them: "Sleeping Flashbacks."

No need to worry about orgasms when yer a physical wreck from lack of sleep, and fear of sleep.

I'm going to look into this. Thanks.

I'll be just fine and dandy
Lord, it's like a hard candy Christmas
I'm barely getting through tomorrow
But I won't let sorrow get me way down.
