I had horribly violent dreams while on Effexor XR. I woke up my 18 month old child one time because I screamed so loud.
I never took a sleeping aid as I had a hard enough time wanting to take anything.


> > Dreams and Effexor. When I was just on the Effexor with a sleeping pill (Ambien) I didn't dream at all but I was lucky if I would get 2 hours of sleep. I am now on Trazadone and Effexor and sleeping like a baby, but I do have dreams and a lot of dreams, sometimes I dream all night long. Nothing violent though. It is just that is goes on all night. But I am still sleeping and that is a blessing. I really hated the Ambien and I now think that it is an evil drug. I will never take it again.

> I take 150mg of Effexor and I have horrible nightmares and I have gained weight on it. I was also taking 25mg of amitriptyline at night to make me sleep, however the amitriptyline has made me want to eat ALL the time and it makes me tired all day, so I stopped taking it 5 days ago and was wondering how you like the trazidone? I have fibromyalgia and need something to sleep but don't want anything that is going to make me for worse all day and gain weight. Please help
