Hey Scott,

Well, nortriptyline affects everyone different, and does cause vivid dreaming and nightmares for some.(https://www.forhims.com/blog/nortriptyline-side-effects)

In one study (involving cannnabis and nitrazapam) only nightmares were suppressed by lithium. (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4582056/) For me, lithium is better than any other conventional nightmare treatment (including prazosin and clonidine) Lithium just also gives me better subjective sleep. I think the overall improvement in sleep architecture brought on by lithium is a part of this. Plus all of it's other benefits.
