  • From this study (6 months ago):

  • Nightmares more frequently since starting Flecainide about 1 1/2 years ago. The dreams vary in intensity and seem to be less on days when I have been very active and tired at bed time.

  • From this study (1 year ago):

  • I was taking Levothyroxine before without bad dreams but my condition got worse and the doctor increased my dose which I've been on for about 2 weeks and every night since I have been having terrible dreams. This is the only medication I am on. I do have ADD, depression, and anxiety but I do not take medication for it anymore. I just want to know if the Levothyroxine is whats causing these nightmares. Thank you

  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • Nightmares occurred when I was on simvastin after just a few weeks and stopped when I stopped the simvastin. I have been on crestor for three months but in the last week have developed nightmares every night which I didn't have before. I dream but these are scary, sometimes violent nightmares. I am going to go off the medicine Crestor and see if they stop. My doctor does not think statins cause nightmares.
