    Default Pain Meds And Dreams

    The last two nights I've been on pain meds I've had vivid, emotional bad dreams that left me crying and screaming in my sleep or shaking and convulsing. Any idea if strong pain meds can do this?

    I've heard they can. I used to be on Vicodin heavily and I would get vivid dreams. Mostly not bad ones, but only got horrible ones on the Vicodin as well....

    Yeah, they can give you nightmares. I don't know why, buy my Pa was taking some heavy meds and he complained about really bad nightmares. His dreams were so bad, he stopped taking the meds. If you can, try switching to extra strength Advil for your post-op pain. I never took the percs, just popped and advil here and there and I was fine.

    Hmm, I took a couple Vicodins after my first night back to dancing and I have not had any nightmares. I usually never remember my dreams tho.

    if it makes ya feel better, ive dreamt of murder every night since ive been on pain killers and sleeping tablets.

    im pretty sure its just the pills tho, i NEVER dream bad stuff normally!!

    just lower your dosage, or go to the dr for a different prescripition

    Yes they can. I even have nightmares when on mild pain killers such as nurofen.
