I don't remember dreaming like this before. Is it my bipolar or the medication?
I've noticed that since I've been on narcotics I have really realistic dreams,some scary some not. Hope this helps
I took seroquel for sleep after everything for sleep stopped working. I think I had a nightmare or two but seroquel is tricky sometimes you have vivid dreams.
hello... when i first started taking the seroqueo i had a few weird dreams here and there, but they went away until she increased my dose up to 1200mg... then the dreams came back..but i really don't have them anymore because now i am only taking 400mg now..good luck!!!
Every time I am on anti psychotics I have vivid dreams. I enjoy most of them but some are scary. I have all of my five senses while dreaming. I wake up from the scary ones with a rapid heart rate. If they become too vivid and scary I would talk to your doctor.
It gives me creepy flashback nightmares every night but I can't sleep without it.
I wouldn't say I have nightmares because the dreams I have I wouldn't deem as spooky or scary just occasionally a dream might have an ending that I do not care for but I have been taking Serequil for 5 years and every night since I have had a dream some are random some involve past memories but without fail I dream EVERY NIGHT
I've been on Seroquel for the past few nights and I've had the most intense dreams that I normally don't have. They were more vivid than any other sleep aid I've been on. The dreams were like being the star of a three hour blockbuster movie. All the dreams, for the most part, were positive. Every night when I take it I wonder what kind of crazy adventure I will live through as I sleep :)
everybody should try to lower the dosage if they can, Then the nightmares are still vivids but less intense. I wake up a few times a night in the middle of a nightmare and go back to sleep with the same nightmare that just continue until a wake up again and again... I am now down to only half a 25 ( orange pill) and it still put me to sleep if I take some Methocarbamol, a muscle relaxant. I also feel better the next day with a smaller dose even if i've spent the night fighting monsters , robbers , in jail, or you name it... worst than Walt Disney production.
i have been taking seroquel 300mg for ocd last month last 2 nights i have had the most intense and real nightmares i have ever had in my life.
I’ve been on Seroquel for about two weeks. Mine are really intense as well. The only difference is my dreams and nightmares are fairly common for me. But, these are next level, short film, type of dreams.
Are you experiencing any intensified OCD habits? I remember this happening the last time I took it. I also seem to be a bit agitated. I know it’s going to take a while to get used to, but honestly, the OCD impulses seem worse to me than my movie dreams.
Same. I've been on 25 quetiapine (Seramin) and I've been having movie sessions -yeah, they're no more mere dreams - every freaking night. I wake up exhausted and completely drained out. The dreams are mostly fun themselves, but make me tired in the morning.
I had the same problem with olanzapine as well.
I'm going talk to my doctor and see where it goes.
