Celexa
« on: February 09, 2014, 12:57:34 AM »
I don't know if this is from the medication Bc this has never happened before

I've been on celexa for about 2 months. Just recently If I have a dream where I'm laughing I'll wake up still have asleep laughing, idk if I'm laughing out loud while I'm sleeping but it freaks me out. I end up going to sleep but why am I laughing while I'm sleeping? This has happened twice within a week

Yeah it's weird. I've never been a sleep talker or anything like that. But when I'm sleeping and I'm laughing in my dream I guess I have to be laughing out loud Bc it wakes me up. That could get pretty embarrassing haha

If you wake up during dreaming sleep it is possible that some of that may transfer into the awake state. The mix of neurotransmitters changes dramatically during sleep compared to when awake and it is possible that Celexa is having an affect on this, but it could also be another factor or factors.

At least it sounds like you've been getting some pretty good dreams though. I haven't been able to recall mine for the last few weeks... but then again, thinking about it now it'd be hard to recall anyways. <--That was deep. ::)

Xosammy this happens to me but I wake myself up talking...it's the strangest thing since I've never done this before prior to being on lexapro. My dreams are so life-like and vivid every night that there are times during the day that I have to think if I actually dreamed what I'm thinking about or did it. Strange....the meds must do some weird things to our sleeping/dreaming states.

Ask your doctor to prescribe a small dose, 25-50mg, of trazodone (Desyrel), a sedating antidepressant mostly prescribed to treat SSRI induced insomnia. At the low doses used to improve sleep it has no antidepressant properties so won't affect Celexa.
