Can Klonopin cause nightmares and very vivid dreams?
I have been having very bad nightmares and very vivid dreams for a couple days now. I have been on klonopin almost a month along with my limictal. I was wondering could the klonopin be causing the sleep disturbances....

I'm not sure but I remember when I was on Lamictal it caused disturbed sleep and nightmares. I've been on Klonopin 10 years and it actually helps adjust sleep. It would more likely be the Lamictal but speak to your psychiatrist about it. Unless the Lamictal is sedating perhaps you could ask them if the time when you take it could be adjusted so it was earlier so it would not interrupt sleep.

I have been on Klonopin for years and I don't have any problems with it.  It has helped with the nightmares actually

I have been taking Lamictal for years, but recently started taking Klonopin.  I started having vivid dreams/nightmares within 3 days.  I don't know if it's just the Klonopin, or if it's the mixture of the two medications.  I plan to ask my physician next week at my appointment.

I have been taking Klonipin for 6 years .5mg, and Lamectil 200mg. I have several distressing dreams a week. Its panic dreams like loosing my teeth, being naked in public, not being able to find my car, people i love dying, disasters like tornados, tsunamies, armegeddon. There is always some kind of stress in my dreams.. I am always neglecting something, or cant find any shoes to wear , not being able to find a nromal decent toilet, not being able to get through to 911 cuz there is something wrong with the phone, getting lost. I had my first night mare at six and have always struggled withthem, but my night mares have changed since taking both of these meds, I have anxiety dreams now, and less disaster dreams. I dream about a man shooting everyone and I think I am gonna die. Its hard to tell if its the meds or not. Idont abuse them. I never have panic attacks. I guess I am no help if I dont even know if it gives me nightmares or not.
