ahalo Posted November 24, 2010 Share Posted November 24, 2010 So as I mentioned in a prior thread Lithium while working beautifully has caused me to have super vivid dreams. And I've been dreaming about people who I am cut off from (one is my sister who was violent towards me, and the other is her little boy who I took care of primarily for over a year up until about 6 wks ago). Anyway, the other day I thought my nephew was with me and I woke up and he wasn't and as the day progressed I was convinced my sister and nephew had died and I would have know way of knowing. Etc etc. Other scattered thoughts. Anyway my pdoc prescribed Clonidine saying that it should keep me from having the vivid dreams. He said it's prescribed to people sometimes who have PTSD and has been effective with nightmares, etc. I'm wondering if anyone has tried it and if it was effective? I suppose I'll find out soon enough. I'm starting on a low low low dose and slowly ramping up so it'll probably be a bit before I find out. But I'm anxious for relief. I've been sleep phobic the last few days and I love to sleep so it's kind of sucked Any insight greatly appreciated into this med Never heard of it til now.
