I had forgotten what it was like to dream on medication.WOW talk about vivid and detailed...some of them are downright freaky,and I can pretty much remember them all
Hahahhah...can I blame my anxiety on him TOO? please??????????I don't know, to be honest. Just tell your husband it's his fault.
Bruxism may also be an uncommon side effect of some antidepressant medications, particularly selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors. Some are citalopram (Celexa), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil) and sertraline (Zoloft).
Another uncommon side effect is bruxism (teeth grinding). When patients start using citalopram they may experience a feeling similar to electricity or minor shocks in their upper body and in their hands. This is caused by the chemical changes occurring in the brain and they pass with time.
talk about vivid and detailed...(dreams while on SSRI)
The exception is the SNRI which acts on the reuptake of both serotonin and norepinephrine.
Was this at least someone you knew?
I can attest to the fact that the drowsiness/sleepiness does NOT go away long termThat's why it's not uncommon for people using SSRI /SNRI might experience some nausea, drowsiness, or constipation, but most of these go away with SSRI's after a few weeks.
As well I get what I have termed "brain pain" which are little zap like pains in the back of the right hand side of my skull
