I have a Rx for Clonazepam nightly for panic and it really helps. It is a serious medication and I have quarterly appointments to evaluate my situation. I reduced a lot of my medication when I got a Service Dog. She wakes me up when I have nightmares. I get up and 'break the cycle' to be able to go back to sleep. Training to make waking me up a 'task' and not just a random act was difficult, but worth it. I have had her over three years now.
Now I have more 'bad dreams' that I wake up from because they aren't 'right'. I have a lot fewer screaming, sweating nightmares - I am not so afraid to put my head on the pillow! I sleep about 6 hours before I start being awake or half-asleep and needing to stop thinking about the dreams and just lie still until the alarm goes off.
I think my bad dreams would be nightmares to most people.
