I have had night horrors for a while now, but none like the one I am having currently. In it I am repeatedly getting raped by overpowering men. I need something strong enough to prevent me from dreaming. I am seeing a psychiatrist about this and other mental health issues that are getting slowly exacerbated by this. These conditions are Severe Depression with suicidality, general and social anxiety, ptsd, insomnia, and gender dysphoria. I need to sleep, but at present can't without being traumatized by these dreams. Please help.
I have experienced the same problems for about 10 years. Last year I changed to a new mental health provider and they prescribed Minipress (Generic: prazosin) . I take a low dose (2 mg) 30 minutes prior to bedtime and my sleep increased from approx 2 to 3 hours of interrupted sleep to a solid 4 to 5 hrs. This was being taken along with 150 mg trazodone and 50 mg of Vistaril (generic: Hydroxyzine).
Unfortunately, the Trazodone caused me to wake up with a headache. Looking for an alternative for the Trazodone.
Believe the best sleep I have gotten in years was when used Seroquel 200 mg combo.. that lasted 3 months before the insurance insisted it be changed.
Hope this helps.. Good luck
I don't have an answer ., other than you are not alone ! I suffer from night terrors , tried prazosin , Dr said would help me not dream. Um no. First week was ok but it stopped and then I gained weight . If you find a drug to stop night terrors . Please let me know!!! Screaming while sleeping , running out of bed room/ house all while I'm sleeping , dreams are so real ! Fear is real ! Family members have brought me back in house and slowly wake me , all while I'm shaking crying . I'm scared to sleep . I do take quetiapine ,100mg this knocks me out but does not stop dreams. Also I wake up groggy as all goofy land . Suffer from PTSD. Anxiety. Have issues with rods / cage pins in spine so any sleep undisturbed by pain or dreams thst send me out the door is welcomed !! Again if you find a medication for no dreams , please share . Hope I was helpful , your not alone ...
