Prazosin is a crappy antihypertensive. It has not resulted in a drop in my blood pressure. Nor has it produced orthostatic hypotension, despite my taking a large dosage of Parante. The main concern is the body's reaction to the first few doses of prazosin. Even 1 mg can cause syncope. So, it is standard procedure to take 1-2 mg as an initiation dose immediately before going to bed. I have been taking 30 mg/day for several years. For nightmares, doctors have been using 3 mg h.s. The really smart doctors go higher and dose t.i.d. to treat the daytime anxiety and depression that accompany PTSD.
