I am stable on medication and recovering from alcoholism and a bipolar disorder for almost 8 years. No deaths, no big changes, except unemployment 1 year ago. My partner spent over 10 minutes trying to get me awake last night. I was screaming at him, kicking him and hitting him in the face. This was the worst I have ever been and he's ready to leave. I started sleep walking about 2 years ago and I cannot wake up from that. I have done that about 4-5 times. Last night really scared me (and him). I receive all my meds from one doc. I really need some help!

I am sorry to hear your nightmares are so bad. I am a nightmare sufferer too. There are two medications that, over the years, have worked for me as dream blockers. One is doxepin and the other is xanax. They are not sleeping pills. They literally block my dreams. Good luck.

We need to know what meds your on. Are you on Wellbutrin?.that can cause the vivid dreams, Are you on ambien? That can cause the sleep walking. And other meds can cause side effects. I am very glad you have a partner that can help you and wake you up. Comment and tell me if your on those meds please, ok.
