I am 26 year old male that suffers from PTSD and Anxiety Disorder. I am currently taking Zoloft 50mg 2 times per day and Ativan .5mg in the morning and 1mg at night. I also take Metoprolol .25mg 2 times per day. I have had night terrors relating to my PTSD. Here recently I have been answering phone calls in my sleep and I have been out of character. I have said hateful things to people that I care about. Things that I would not say to them while awake. I am disgusted with myself. I was hateful and acted as if I didn't even want them in my life. This has me so stressed out. I can not control it and that bothers me more than anything. I do not know that I have talked on the phone till somebody tells me. I have been told that my voice doesn't sound like me some of the time and sometimes it sounds as if I am perfectly awake. What is causing this and What should I do?
This is an issue you should bring up with a sleep medicine doctor. There's some evidence that sleep talking, walking and eating may be related to sleep-breathing problems. PTSD can also be aggravated by a sleep-breathing disorder.
