Today I’ve had two nightmares that scared me awake and when I woke up, my heart rate was crazy high. I definitely don’t understand where it’s coming from other than being stressed and thinking a lot. I don’t think it’s my meds making me have them. Any ideas would be great!

      @Harley100719 I’m really glad it helps you!! ☺️ My mom and some friends get nightmares, and it straight up doesn’t do anything for me, but I’m always genuinely happy to see other people getting a lot of benefit from supplements like that! ✨

      Oh man. That’s sooo stressful. 😞🫂 I know melatonin supplements can cause nightmares for some people, especially in higher doses. I would bet more on stress, but figured I’d mention it just in case. Also, I saw in one of your replies that you can’t get meds for mental health things (I am so sorry you have to deal with those kinds of people 😞). There is one (prazosin) that’s technically a blood pressure med but is often prescribed at low dose for nightmares. Could be a little loophole if this doesn’t back off soon. Not suggesting it per se, because I don’t know your body or circumstances— just mentioning it to share info you may (or may not) be interested in at some point. 🙂

        @serendi also the thing about melatonin for me it helps and for me it's not addictive but everyone is different it may not be what fits for you or works for you and that's ok I do always recommend researching stuff and or asking doctors for what could help or work for you

      Hey friend I wasn't aware that anti depressants can cause nightmares until a new psychiatrist told me this a few weeks ago. I was having the scariest most real nightmares and she gave me something to take that blocks bad dreams from happening and so far it's worked.i can't remember what its called lol. But thank God because I know how that feels. I suggest talking to your doctor!!

        @brit23 I understand what your saying and agree strongly but for me I have to wait till I'm on my own to get stuff tested to get the medication I need because my parents don't believe that I have anything more than anxiety so I don't take anti depressants or anything for anxiety or any of that so ya but that's me personally

      Hi I'm an insomniac and I also struggle with nightmares and I don't mean like monsters under my bed type as that's what most people think when I say this I have a very active imagination causing me to have really bad dreams/nightmares I use melatonin for both of them cause it helps shut off your brain but that's just what I use and I enjoy that it's not addictive and isn't bad for you
