Sleeping medication and dreaming?

Postby Shay4t5 » 21 Nov 2013 05:02

I've had imsomnia all my life, even as a baby, 2 years ago I finally found something that worked, which is seroquel, it's an antipsychotic but I take a low dose, enough to knock me out for the night. I also drink magnesium to calm my brain too.

Will this interfere with attempting to lucid dream? I have never done it, I'm really eager too. Not taking my pills is out of the question, even a week of not taking it I wont be able to sleep.

Thanks :)

Yes it is likely to interfere with LD. Any drug which dazes one can interfere as you need to become "conscious" during a dream for a LD and a foggy brain certainly wont help.
The only thing to fear is the fear itself

I have taken short term sleeping medication for insomnia. As I understand it, it depends on the medication for what kind of sleep you will get. While I took zopiclone (Lunesta), I did not dream, and I dont think I got a whole lot of REM sleep, although I did feel well rested. When I stopped taking it, even if I only took it for one night, I would get rebound insomnia and nightmares when I did fall asleep, probably from catching up on REM sleep where you dream. I would suppose if you can dream well, you could still have LD while on medication, but that is just my assumption.

A sleeping disorder is the failure to get the measure of sleep you have to wake up feeling rested and revived. Since diverse individuals need distinctive measures of sleep. Sleep deprivation is characterized by the nature of your sleep and how you feel in the wake of dozing not the quantity of hours you rest or how rapidly you snooze off. Regardless of the possibility that you're burning through eight hours a night in bunk, on the off chance that you feel tired and exhausted amid the day, you may be encountering sleep deprivation.

So, try to take help from some good specialist, who provides a you a good drug or medicine
