I've posted several messages regarding Effexor-related dreams and dream states and have found that MANY people note this side effect. For me, the dreams come on like gangbusters if I miss a dose, but they also occur when I'm maintaining my mgs. As you probably agree, they are not your average dreams: very vivid, lots of aural components, strange themes and ideas that don't seem to relate to your life or worries, and for me, they have led to actual physical movement of my body (flailing arms) and talking/shouting in my sleep. I also noted that I often am aware that I'm dreaming while I'm dreaming, which can lead to either an internal struggle to get out of the dream or a struggle to control the dream. This latter aspect can be quite fun, sort of like producing your own movie while you go along. However, the former struggle of trying to get out of a bad dream is very scary. This is the stuff of the Twilight Zone here. Night sweats, tremors, amnesia, are all also associated side effects for me. Good luck.
