In reply to Lamictal and HORRIBLE dreams.., posted by nolegirl23 on March 28, 2007, at 17:03:05

> I started Lamictal a few months ago, and have alternated between taking it in the am and taking it during the pm. Whenever I take Lamictal before bedtime, I have horribly vivid and terrifying dreams. Previously I have had nightmares, but nothing like the nightmares that I have had since I began taking Lamictal.
> For example, last night, I dreamed that my mother was beheaded and I had to carry her head to some village.. (mom died 03/19/01); the other night, I dreamed that my boyfriend shot my cat right in front of me and threw her little corpse at me in vengence (my cat = my daughter), I could go on with my dreams, but I won't.
> These dreams are vivid, life-like and absolutely terrifying. I wake up feeling as if these dreams actually happened in real life. Does anybody else experience this effect from Lamictal?
> Now, please don't get me wrong. The benefits of Lamictal have been great for me. I have experienced much relief from my severe mood swings, and have had relief from my anxiety issues since taking Lamictal. The only problem that I am experiencing is these dreams, GOD they get horrible at times. So frightening that sometimes I wake in the morning in tears, sweating.. I don't know if this is the Lamictal or if it is my screwed up brain....

I take all of my dose in the AM. On 200mg. It doesn't have a sedating effect on me,I find it more energizing.
