I got prescribed sleep medication & it was working amazingly until recently when they've started causing me to have night-terrors to the extreme. It takes me anywhere from 10-45 minutes just to "get-out" of the night-terror when I first start to wake up. As soon as I get up I need to sit in a well lit part of the room because I'm convienced Im still in the nightmare. I get uber paranoid, terrified & become delusional which can be a problem when I'm the only one home alone. I'm only asking because a) I'm not sure if this is common b) Is there any suggestions for what I can do? I can't see my doctor till the spring & c) Has anyone else had this? Can this become dangerous? I'm not sure if I'm allowed to post the name of the med so I didn't.
