Anybody else experiencing inexplicably vivid nightmares. I am not sure whether it's the PPIs or the GERD itself.

I actually did not give it a lot of thought, but one of the doctors asked me about my dreams but I didn't ask why he's asking.

I cannot begin to explain the kind of unbelievably weird dreams I experience. It seems that it's worse when I have my naps during the day.

Sometimes it gets so intense that I can't move for a couple of minutes after waking up and I don't know where dreams stop and reality begins. I dream that I have woken up only to realize that the waking up is a dream...real "Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas" ****

It is like nothing I have ever experienced.

Anyone else?

That's fascinating. I have had more vivid dreams, but only after taking melatonin. I didn't notice any difference before that.

To  the best of my knowledge, vivid dreams may be a side effect of PPIs.
 
May I suggest you talk with your Dr. re which medicatons would have few side effects such as dreams.

Well don't hold your breath. Apart from the dreams, melatonin hasn't had much of an effect on me. I've only gone a week and a half, though, so things may change over time. I'll stick it out at least a month.
