> Since I started taking effexor, I've been haved a series of incredibly vivid and strange dreams. Is anyone else experiencing this too? It seems like I'm in a constant dream state when asleep. I guess that's due to not sleeping deeply. The weirdest one yet was about talking to cheetahs and eating live eels.

Oh. My. God. Can I tell you some of the craziness I went though? I was on the max. dosage and I'm just a small person...whenever my levels would get screwed up (if I skipped doses and/or drank on the drug) my sleep would be so interrupted. I would have some really vivid and 9 times out of 10 incredibly horrific dreams. I always thought it would have been okay if it was just something funny or that made no sense but rarely were these dreams any "fun."

Coupled with that, I would have orgasms in my sleep, night sweats, convusion-like muscle spasms throughout my entire body. Everyone thought the orgasms were a scream. You'd think it'd be pleasurable but when you're having orgasms while dreaming about things that are highly violent and questionable acts (morally, ethically) it really does a trip on your psyche. I thought this was just a trade-off for a drug that worked for me. I'm not on it any more but I might go back to it if I can't find another solution. Things did clear up after I stopped drinking and lowered the dose by one notch. Oh yes, I was having what were believed to be seizures and they cleared up too.

Take care!
