No, Prazosin is not prescribed for sleeplessness. Prazosin is in a class of drugs called alpha blockers and it works by relaxing and widening blood vessels, allowing blood to flow more easily. It is used to treat high blood pressure, which helps prevent strokes, heart attacks, and kidney problems. When prescribed by a physician, it may be used for the blood circulation disorder called Raynaud's phenomenon, to treat problems urinating due to benign prostatic hyperplasia, or to help the body pass kidney stones through urination.
