  • The hallucinations are always negative. They are usually swarming insects or skeletons. The nightmares are morbid and often start out similar to the hallucinations and include graveyard scenes, skulls, and skeletons. The nightmares are progressively worse and become demonic and awful.

    Medications like Risperdal don't start to work until it builds up in your system. You can't just take one pill and it works within hours. No. It usually takes about 3 to 4 weeks to start feeling a diffrence.

  • The hallucinations and nightmares are side effects from the Zanaflex. They occurred when I was taking Zanafex before I began taking the other medications. The nightmares are horrific and terrifying! They include graveyard visions and demons. They're extremely hard to deal with and I will be going in to the doctor to discuss a new drug as I cannot deal any longer with these symptoms.

    The nightmares and the hallucinations include skeletons, snakes, and spiders, and they are nothing short of terrifying.
