    Vivid dreams/nightmares

    I've been on citalopram 30mg since July and i've suffered from vivid dreams/nightmares since starting. They don't bother me as much now but just wondering if this is something anyone else has experienced whilst taking this.

    Same here for me. I've started keeping a dream diary. It helps me get over them a bit better. I wrote them down as soon as I wake up, otherwise I forget them as the day goes on

    Re: Vivid dreams/nightmares

    I used to have really vivid dreams just before waking up. Not always pleasant. However, since I started on olanzapine roughly 3 months ago I am hardly dreaming at all.

    I am actually finding it really hard to wake up in the mornings now. The radio alarm clock could be going off for a hour sometimes before it wakes me. I am not aware of any dreams though. Very rarely these days anyway.

    I just started Fluoxetine/Prozac after switching from Sertraline/Zoloft, and OMG, the dreams are so vivid now! And they're all either nightmares or anxiety-related. Hopefully this will change soon, as my general mood improves. I get them right before I wake up in the morning.

    I've had problems waking up, infact every morning. I used to be an early bird, I'd always be up before sunrise and id never snooze my alarm but nowadays I just can't wake up. It's really hard. Ive not found anyway to make this easier no matter how much/how little sleep I get. Or whT dreams I do or don't have ☹
