I think SP mabye a step toward lucid dreaming? >>

I think so too. Stephen LaBerge, a sleep researcher, has used galantamine (an anti-Alzheimer's med that boosts acetylcholine levels) to induce rapid dream onset/intensify dreaming, which is the opposite of what most AD's do, and to train subjects to lucidly dream. I use AD's to SUPPRESS dreaming, and to eliminate SP (sleep paralysis). If I'm on too low a dose of AD, I experience sleep paralysis nearly every night, and even though I know I'm 'only' dreaming, it manifests itself not merely as hallucinations (which I can deal with by closing my eyes; no, my eyes don't physically close, because they're already closed; I close them in the dream!) but as painful bodily sensations, similar to the electrical shocks that people get withdrawing from paxil and Effexor.

By the way, I have experienced these when I've fallen asleep right after taking clonazepam, too. The good news is that I developed tolerance to this particular side effect.
