Bad Nightmares on Lexapro/escitalopram

Posted , 3 users are following.

I am having bad nightmares and weird ones too. Is anyone else having this problem. Its been a while now they seem to be mainly early in the morning when i wake and doze in and out of sleep.or maybe they are the ones i remember. Sometimes i take an antihistamine or sleeper and it happens i then put it down to drug interaction. I gave up smoking cold turkey 4mths ago can it be that still.

    Hi I emphasise.  I take 150 mgs of sertraline a day and half a 7mgs dose of mirtazaine to help me sleep.  I suffer from very strange and nasty dreams too.  I think it is a side effect of the sertraline,  but for me it's a good trade off.  x
