I missed my dose of 100 mg of sertraline and I had the most vivid night terror ever. It kept coming back worse each time I managed to go back to sleep and now I'm too terrified to go back to sleep. Is this common or should I report this to my Dr? Or has nothing to do with missing a dose? I've just never had anything like this happen. It truly scared me as I have my baby sleeping in a co sleeper next to me - I had to have my spouse sleep next to her while I went to the couch because I was so terrified of something happening.
Missing only one dose isn't terrible, but missing more and you will experience withdrawals. I can't say what caused the nightmare. It could simply be the stress and such from having a baby. If it continues, I would at least let the doctor know.
