I think the overall improvement in sleep architecture brought on by lithium is a part of this. Plus all of it's other benefits.

This is another thing you taught me. Obviously, lithium was not mitigating my acting out dreams, but I was only taking 300 mg/day. Lithium is kinda sorta like aspirin for the brain. It produces a plethora of biological and clinical activities that I doubt are well-understood. So, it is not surprising that it should help with your dreaming condition. I think my dream anomalies are due to MAOIs, possibly in conjunction with nortriptyline as you described.

I appreciate your input.

Some see things as they are and ask why.
I dream of things that never were and ask why not.

The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing.
