    Since switching from 20, to 40, to 60mg Fluxotine (Prozac) my mood is much more settled, i go abit 'vacant' from time to time but all in all i am genuinley happier

    However my sleep pattern is awful, and when i do drop off i have awful dreams. Mostly nightmares, some weird random dreams. When i started on the higher dose they were more frequent but now they seem to be subsiding

    Any one else experienced this, and any tips on better sleep whilst on flux, or anything youve done to help?

    Also the dreams thing?

    I have heard this happening I think i would discuss this with your doctor maybe he would have some suggestions Or maybe once the meds level out the dreams will subside a bit Sorry i cannot help more

    I would also mention this to your pdoc. Prozac can have that effect on some people, maybe if you tried taking it in the morning it wouldn't cause insomnia. I know that it was very activating for me so if I took it at night it usually affected my sleep. Good luck with it.

    I take it every morning usually between 8am and 10am, the dreams are subsiding its just taking me a while to drop off.

    I have my normal check up in a couple of weeks so will mention it then, but deffo doing better on the 60mg dosage! :hamster:
