I was on prozac and also had intense dreams. They were disturbingly physical--I'd dream that I was trying to sleep but my body kept getting flung around the room. It was a really apt image, the stuff was just too activating for me. Or I'd dream that parts of my body were coming off, including lots of gross stuff coming out my mouth. Another frequent theme was fantastical wild animals. It was not restful at all! One thing that helped my sleep cycle was adding a low dose of Nortryptiline. Before that I had 'early morning awakening' meaning I'd be wide awake at 5 am, but hadn't really had enough sleep to get up. With the nortryptiline+prozac I could at least sleep 8 hours, but I still had the dreams. Eventually I switched to serzone, and the dreams stopped.
