Prazosin is the only thing that keeps my every-night nightmares under control, but about half the nights I take it, it makes my heart point terribly. I can't find out why it does this, or if it's something that might go away over time. I've taken it for several months now.
I take 2mg prazosin before bed, my heart sometimes "pounds" for a few mins IF I get up... and this is because it's supposed to relax your body and mind.. it can cause drowsiness (side effect) and if I stay up or get up and walk around, I feel like my brain gets confused and my heart starts to pump more blood to wake me up more. You're supposed to go to sleep right away. However, it's best to tell your dr about this if you feel unwell
