Re: Has anyone experienced nightmares on Effexor XR Kathy Powers

Effexor XR (and some other AD's) can cause vivid dreams. Whether they are pleasant dreams or nightmares probably depends on the person. If she has a vivid imagination fed by scary movies or books, it might be expressed as nightmares. Or if she has any unresolved fears or issues during her waking hours, they might be expressed as nightmares while she sleeps. Most my Effexor dreams are very interesting and I almost regret waking up. Last night I had my first nightmare on it (1.5 to 2 months now on it). It was about my fear of being defenseless against abuse by men. I woke up shaking and almost unable to function. One note: for me, the nightmare only happened when I started to decrease my dosage of Effexor and switch to Lexapro. I think I'll stick on Effexor.
