PTSD medication

Postby TimHensby on Fri Feb 07, 2020 7:53 pm

I have been prescribed a medication called Prazosin for PTSD. (Apparently it is normally used for high blood pressure). Have been on it for a couple of months at very low dose and the intention was to gradually increase it. The problem now is that it has become unavailable in all my local pharmacies, both small independents and large high street chains. They have tried ordering it from various suppliers without success. Just wondering if anyone else here is on Prazosin and having the same problem.

Hi TimHensby,

Sorry to hear that you have had trouble acquiring Prazosin. We hope that you will receive some replies soon from our other members who may have been experiencing the same problem.

Unfortunately we are unable to give out specific medical advice but would always suggest you go and see your GP again and ask if there is perhaps an alternative drug that could help you. You could try ordering from an online Pharmacy. You will still need your prescription from your Doctor to order this way.

Good Luck!
Kind regards
