Hi Mike! I was on Remeron for about a year sometime back and all of the sudden I started having the most horrid nightmares and even nightmares is a lesser word for them, I am thinking more like night terrors!
I always dreamed about someone dying and usually it wasnt a nice peaceful way to go either.
They were so real and so vivid and colorful or at least they seemed that way to me at the time.
After a night of dreaming I killed my kids and even woke up and recalled looking down and "seeing" blood all over me I jumped out of bed and ran to check on each of them,they were fine I might add but I was a basket case needless to say. To me it was so real that I put my keys on the counter and went out to the car locking the door behind me and slept out there the rest of the night. Like I said it was so real I was afraid it was something to come? Like said earlier it was night terrors for sure.
I had started a new med so my Doc assumed that was it and we stopped the med but the terrors didnt so we kept eliminating one thing at a time and immediately after stopping the remeron the dreams came to a halt and I never had another one since.
Dont know how or if this relates but searching your med list there were several that can and do cause nightmares or dreaming.
I guess I would begin by talking to your Doc and getting his or her take on it if it is really bothering you or interrupting your sleep,many of us cant afford that!
Good luck and I assume since your here at this time of the morning it has been one of those nights? Here is hoping you get back to a dreamless sleep.
