I had the vivid dreams with nightmare quality and it may have been when I was on Lexapro which I took for about 8 weeks. They went away when I switched meds. I don't know if the med was the cause for sure. :)
Thank you for your replies,
I am still having the dreams, but at least last night they weren't horrible. The reason my dreams are so disturbing is that often my deceased family members are in them, and it seems so real... I wake up very upset. I reduced my dose, which I do from time to time (with doctor's permission), but I guess I'll just have to wait and see. I wish I could be sure a change in antidepressants would get rid of this... I can't afford to go into another major depression with my new job training which lasts another 9 weeks... maybe when it's over???
(((Hugs))) to all,
