Hi everyone. I'm really hoping some of you can help me here. My fiance suffers from night terrors. I'm sure they are. They are more than nightmares and he hates them. He was bullied throughout school, and whilst our loving relationship is helping him tons, he still has a lot of insecurities etc. Needless to say, he suffers with depression. He's been to the doctors about 4 times and they have been completely unhelpful. They reccomended he use St John's Wort - but it didn't help cos he needs something stronger. Anyway. That's not what I'm here for. His nightmares/terrors can be to do with anything - school, war, loosing me, etc etc. When he drinks whiskey or red wine or port before bed (only the strong drinks, not beer) then he doesn't get these nightmares. To me, the nightmares aren't neccesarily about the bullying (thought obviously it contributes), but more to do with anxiety. He runs his own business and if business is bad, the dreams are bad too.

So, getting to my question - does anyone have any tips on how to deal with this awful dreams? Perhaps how to lessen their effect, earadicate them (if only!!) etc. I'd really appreciate the help, and I know he will too.

Thank you :)
