No nightmares, but missing one dose has turned into a daytime horror story. The immediate withdrawal effects were headache, naseua, dizziness and vertigo, electrical shock pains, severe depression, and all the other stuff. It's got a half life of about 4-8 hours, so if you miss a dose it is completely out of your system. Be careful if you ever decide to quit, it is much worse.
What seems to help: Benadryl, Allegra-D, Dramamine, Prozac. Talk to your doctor, but one of these might help you if you miss a day. Plus, the product literatur says if you miss a day to wait until your next regular time, but that's not a good idea. Better to take it each day, even if you miss a time, than to skipp it for 24 hours.
