  • From this study (1 month ago):

  • dreams are always about me defending myself against some type of physical attack, usually involving animals of some sort. These dreams began about a month or so after I started taking atorvastin. I take 20 mg of it per day and do so in the evening as instructed by doctor. I very seldom experienced dreaming of any kind prior to this. The dreams always make me respond physically in my sleep and I have accidentally kicked my wife during one of these events.
