i am having strange dreams of being in the service again, of being back in combat kinda of like the same dream over and over again it's been since 95 that i served and i was diagnosed with PTSD in 94. i posted this a while ago in the PTSD forum but got no feedback. combat is a horrible thing what could i do to sleep better ?
Sometimes the meds you are taking can make you dream if you are taking medication for PTSD check with the Doc as many cause nightmares.Maybe a change is in order .how do you feel during the day do you feel well nothing new stressing you , amy change in enviroment? .
i have tardive dyskinesia now and the congentin i take for it makes me drowsy and i sleep all day you could be right about change. i take klonopin at night and my psychiatrist has been giving me smaller doses i guess it's true about the meds btw i got TD from geodon and he put me back on abilify :)
yup that 'll be it, if you sleep a lot during the day it will affect nightime sleep , and if hes lessening the dose that will not help either ,ask him if if he has a prescription that will keep you awake during the day . You'll feel better .
thank you for your response i am going to ask him about that when i go see him at the VA on june 2nd . i have to wait it out and hopefully i will get a handle on these dreams i've been having at night maybe i will sleep better :)
I bet you will, I know that even supplements can have a similar affect I was taking 5HTP it really works makes you feel great but with side effects after a while you have to take a break, I found I was dreaming all the time ,I dint like it, so I stopped them and the dreams stopped, but then I took them again later, I think if one takes anything for a while it has some effect..at the moment I am taking something called Sernity formula..makes you feel great it has the herb Rhodiola in it, I havent had any effects yet, so I have asked the good and learned folks on the Alternative therapy forum if they know anything about it...
