On 7 February 2018 Reuters reported:
The blood pressure drug prazosin, widely prescribed to relieve symptoms of post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), has failed to show it can reduce distressing dreams or improve sleep quality in a trial of 304 military veterans at 13 Veterans Affairs medical centers. After 10 weeks of therapy with the generic drug ... recipients had no significant reduction in recurrent nightmares or easier sleep compared to veterans receiving placebo. Experts in PTSD familiar with the research have been shocked by the findings . . . An estimated 5 percent to 10 percent of the U.S. population has PTSD, with much higher rates among veterans and active-duty soldiers.
