Hello , welcome to JustAnswer . I will be answering you shortly

Sorry to know that . Whats her age ? Any recent stressors? Any sleep aid that she might have tried?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
Weel, we dont know the reason of her nightmares. The problem starts when she goes to sleep. As soon as she fall asleep nightmares comes up

Any medicines that she takes at all ? Its psychological usually precipitated by some stress , subconsciously playing on her mind

Dreams problem*

Does she take a beta blocker at all ?

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
No. Just pain killers

Ok . Its a good idea to take some sleep aid like Melatonin , it should help . If the problem persists then seeing a psychiatrist might be a good idea . Counselling / discussion on her mental state might be needed , psychs can help .

Customer: replied 9 days ago.
The problem is that sleeping is not a problem for her. She falls asleep verry easy
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
But as soon she falls asleep nightmares comes in. And they are so powerful that its verry difficult for me tonwake her up
Customer: replied 9 days ago.
To wake her up*

I can understand but its interrupted sleep because of nightmares . Sleepaids can help with suppressing her mind so that would mean a better uninterrupted sleep .
