Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

There are a variety of treatment options for nightmares. In terms of medication, prazosin has been shown in large scale clinical trials to decrease nightmares. Psychotherapy, particularly psychodynamic psychotherapy, can also be very helpful. I offer text-based psychotherapy on this site at this link:

Or you can search for a provider in your area for medication management and psychotherapy.
