Has Worked for About a Week for Nightmares

2 mg oral prazosin (daily)
I am not very good at providing a straight report without drawing personal issues into it.

Here it is in short:
I dream of lucid nightmares that make for extensively long and painful nights.
This is my every day and has been for years.
I've had enough long ago.
I get bullied, stabbed and shot repeatedly in my sleep every night and it hurts like you wouldn't believe.
Threatened every night by my own ego, I am not permitted to sleep, or care for myself anymore. Without Prazosin It feels like a single night is longer than my waking days. Without Prazosin for the first 2 years, when the nightmares all began; I gave up, over and over again. I must be a sucker for pain and suffering though because I've kept myself alive this whole time some how.

Prazosin has worked for about a week for me. I'm a victim of nightmares, lucid dreaming and have been afraid to sleep every night for a few years now. For this reason I've lost the playfulness or happiness I used to have. If anyone having similar issues is out there doing a search on how to stop nightmares from consuming their life, ask about Prazosin. I'm not sure if I'm saved yet, but if not, well, the week-long break I got was all I needed to make up my mind about what comes next. I wish I knew about this med before all of my memories were ruined.

Prazosin: No Side Effects for me. And no recreational value unless you consider escaping the grasp of your worst fears a high, which for me it is. Its 3:30 AM for me.
I'm terrified as usual.
