From this study (2 years ago):
wake up 3 to 4 times a week after having a severe nightmare in which i wake up crying and sobbing,never had anything like this before
Tara.22yrs.5 months on depo on Jan, 18, 2013:
No, nightmares, but waking up sobbing & attacking my boyfriend...I'm on the second shot and this site is scaring me, I have read way to much about other side-effects and I have experienced loads of other side-effects. I'm sorry, I think it's causing depression in you and myself. Hence your nightmares and crying and my anger/fear and sobbing uncontrollably over nothing. Ha I wish I could talk to you in person because I really related to your comment, but, anyways, I think I'm looking for an alternative and I am definitely not getting the 3rd come February...
Also though, I'd like to make make some suggestions and I hope you don't mind... So, maybe reading The Science of Sleep by Freud will help you understand how relevant nightmares and dreams are to our emotional levels. Perhaps, start taking herbal serotonin restoratives like 5htp(I'm planning on re-reading that book and buying some 5htp) And talk to a doctor about benzo's or anti-depressants, just please be careful with prescriptions, I can't believe How much this shot has been effecting mental, emotional and physical state...
take care and I hope you have people to talk to about it
