A friend of mine has been on Duragesic/Fentinol patches for nearly 10 years and has HORRIBLE nightmares. They are so bad that the entire family is affected as he awakens them nightly by yelling out horrible words and frightening everyone including the family pet!

For medical reference. Yes I took this medication yesterday and experienced a sleep paralysis type of nightmare where I was continually trying to wake up, but when I tried to fall back asleep I was being dragged away by black entities. As an adult I could rationalise this as a medical side-effect, but this would have been terrifying if I was a child. This should be listed quite clearly as a side effect of the active ingredient Fluconazole.

I took Diflucan yesterday for my vaginal yeast infection. I suffered intense nightmares throughout the night. Even when I woke up and was half asleep, trying to go back to bed, every time I close my eyes I would hear weird noises and feel like someone is talking to me and touching me, at one point I felt someone crawling into my bed and trying to suffocate me. And when I finally slept I woke up because of another nightmare. It was horrible and continued all night. Couldn't get sleep at all.

I am female. Age 23. Took the single dose pill for Yeast infection & had extremely vivid nightmares all night non stop & they were Very vivid/realistic in nature. Almoat as soon as I closed my eyes, they would begin & I woke up many times in a sweet with my heart racing.
Has any1 noticed a possible drug interaction with the type of anti-biotic they used prior (hence the reason you got a yeast infect. in 1st place)?
I was one Augmenton for ear infection.
POssible OTHER DRUG INTERACTIONS: (things I am on)
Adderrall XR -for ADHD
Fioricet-for headache associated with the ear infection.
Please let me know if any 1 else is taking any of the same other meds, who had this night-mare reaction.
Trying to figure out if this was and inter-reaction or just a reaction to diflucan alone.
