I have and still do take antipsychotics for my bipolar and I've also struggled with nightmares. Since getting on my medication I do still have them but it's way less than I used to get them and their way less anxiety triggering for me personally.

thanks for the reply. My doctor wants to put me on lamotrigine but im hear a cocktail of both mood stabolizers and antipsychotics work but im assuming a mood stabolizer is probably the 1st thing people with bipolar get put on huh? Did you ever take them and if so what what your experience. Nervous about switching meds.....again
