 4  ptsd, nightmares dizziness, feeling faint This med generally helps to reduce the frequency and intensity of my nightmares. I usually go up a mg or two if the nightmares return but the Prazosin does a pretty good job. It isn't a magic pill and some side effects can be frustrating but overall it's well worth it for me. F 22 4 months

 1  Panic Disorder, GAD Horrible constipation, low blood pressure, low heart rate, dizziness This medication is dangerous if you're small and your BP runs on the low end of normal like me. It made my heart rate and blood pressure go down to the point where I almost fainted. The constipation it caused, along with the effexor constipation, was unbearable. Plus it stopped working after 2 weeks. I see so many success stories about how it's helped people with their PTSD and anxiety, I'm unfortunately not one of them. F 20 2 months

 5  PTSD nightmares blurred vision, nausea; I take 4 mg I take a Pepsid with it and I'm fine. I've gone from disfunctional at least a whole day after a nightmare, to waking up just fine. The vision is an issue, but worth the benefits. I also don't need a sleeping med at night; the prazosin fixes that problem too. F 26 10 weeks

 4  pheochromocytoma I have not had any side effects from this drug. It does not keep my blood pressure down like the Norvasc that I was taking for a while before being dianogised with pheo. Taking a dose of 6 capsules per day. Hope it is working the way it should, I am sure they will let me kow when I go back in Although they have just added Atenolol, but I am cold all the time until I have the sweats which are one of the symptoms of the tumor. F 47 70 days

PRAZOSIN HCL  (PRAZOSIN HYDROCHLORIDE):  Prazosin is used with or without other medications to treat high blood pressure. Lowering high blood pressure helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. Prazosin belongs to a class of medications called alpha blockers. It works by relaxing and widening blood vessels so blood can flow more easily.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
