Hi, am just over 2 weeks into treatment and am now having terrible dreams. Has anyone else experienced this?

Still feeling very low and can sleep all day on and off

but wake up during night?

    Yes I think scary and weird dreams are normal on this medicine - but it should pass in time.  It's part of the awful side effects that happen at the start of taking them.  Usually takes around 6-8 weeks to feel the benefits.

    I've taken these for 15 years and can honestly say they're the best thing ever!

    Yes I also have been getting nightmares and vivd dreams! I am 4 weeks into treatment. Just try and stick it through! Nightmares were one of my least concerned side effects. Hopefully thats all you will get as a side effect. As for sleeping I read it is normal to have an unusual sleeping pattern, as mine went bonkers as well! I sleep from 8am-4pm regularly if I do manage to get it to sleep! I am told it will pass!

    Good luck, hope your feeling better soon!

    Yes, nightmares and disturbing dreams all the time.  They felt so real so that didn't help my depression at all.  If they continue, tell your doc. and get a change of tablet.

    I'm on my 4th week and have the same problem. Feel like all I do is sleep at the minute. The vivid dreams are a nightly annoyance too. Hoping they subside.
