Clinical Trials:


Prazosin Use in Adults with Anxiety Disorders

Summary: Prazosin has shown effectiveness in treating Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder through improving sleep quality and global functioning. Given the significant evidence for its utility in treating PTSD, in combinations with the fact that many anxiety symptoms overlap with PSTD (e.g. insomnia, hyperarousal, and irritability), it is essential to evaluate its potential effectiveness in treating symptoms of other anxiety disorders and patient tolerability.
