Now there is a trial of a new medication designed to lessen nightmares and improve sleep for those with PTSD, reports ABC7.

“What we call, photographers call, the golden hours,” said Ali Bardeguez. For professional photographer Bardeguez, the hours before dark are the best time of the day. Nighttime, not so much. Nightmares are the norm, not the exception. “If I’ve got a lot going on, I’ll probably have three in a week,” she said.

Staff Sergeant Bardeguez was an active duty Marine from 2006 until 2011. During her two extended deployments she worked in avionics, testing and maintaining navigation systems, and witnessed a lot of injuries. Bardeguez has been back home for seven years and says she still gets edgy out of the blue.
