I've noticed since going on Effexor-XR that I've had really violent lucid dreams that truely do scare me in the dreaming and waking state as other people here have noticed too.
Only last night it was that I had 2 seperate nightmares in the one night and they both involved me either being dead, trying to stop someone from killing me or a really strong surreal feeling of physically dying.
Whilst in the dream I notice I feel pains in the chest where I have been shot (in the dream of course) and I get really upset about it.
I wake up feeling deprived of a relaxing night's sleep and troubled by the detailed gorish dreams.
When my GP put me on this AD he casually advised that lucid dreams may be a side effect I experience but I never expected it to be of this severe degree and troubling me so much while I'm awake.
I wish there was some sort of relief from these dreams and if anyone here knows of something I could try I'd much appreciate it.

I'm rather worried about going to sleep tonight but I guess I will have to eventually.
