I’ve have vivid dreams where I know I’m dreaming what doesn’t it mean?

Posted , 4 users are following.

I know that I’m dreaming so I had an anxiety attack because I felt like I was gonna stay in this dream state and I wasn’t going to wake up but I tried to calm down by saying it’s a dream I will wake up. Anyone else had this feeling?

    Mirtazapine can cause vivid dreams. I take 15 mg at night to help with sleep. I also remember the dreams when I wake up. Some people who take it have bad dreams, but they don't bother me. Are you taking any meds that might affect your sleep?

    Hey there, yes! I'm an expert when it comes to handling my own dreams. It stems from when I had nightmares that were so scary that, as you described, I would know I'm dreaming and I would be trying mentally to wake myself up. I'm quite good at waking myself up now xxx Donna x

    I agree with hypercat that it's nothing to worry about. Some say that dreams are just the way our mind cleans house of all the crazy, random thoughts. If the dreams are preventing you from getting enough regenerative sleep, then you should probably see your doctor to help you get the kind of sleep you need. Good luck.
