I completely relate to this! I have been on Lexapro almost 2 years, and have had vivid, realistic dreams the entire time that I've been on the medication. A lot of my dreams have my deceased relatives in them.. and I wake up thinking for a few minutes that it was not a dream at all... sometimes I look forward to the dreams, as they are not nightmares really, just very vivid. Even though I have this side effect, it's better than the depression, which I have relapsed into a few times... *hugs*
