I am the Crazy RxMan, your local pharmacist... smart enough to be a pharmacist, insane enough to work retail!
A preceptor from one of my rotations from way back when got me on this one and its the only reason why I remember it to this day. Alpha blockers like prazosin are used off-label for people that have nightmares and/or PTSD. Apparently, they actually work.
Prazosin is sometimes used for PTSD.
actually, this is a real use for that drug.
Prazosin is actually used to treat nightmares elated to PTSD. We have several patients on it. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3538493/
I see it more for ptsd than any other indication. We do have a decent sized psych unit and due to location, have a fair share of psych patients with medical problems on other units
