I have in the past dealt with nightmares from being shot, being knifed, being in a car bomb and being attacked on guard duty. I am being clinically followed at a VA hospital.

I have been taking this medication for several years now for moderate to severe PTSD and I am very satisfied with the results. Went a week without it once and the nightmares returned.
