Therapy or med: Psychotherapy can help identify the underlying cause of the nightmares and help improve the problem. Imagery rehearsal therapy is a treatment that specifically is used to help bad dreams/nightmares. Prazosin is an older blood pressure medication that is used off-label to help with bad dreams and nightmares, especially in those with ptsd. See your doctor for more assistance.
