What's up w/the crazy dreaming since tapering?

5 posts in this topic

Ever since I started tapering off these pills, I've been having crazy dreams. Vivid dreams, and a lot of them.

Anyone else experience this?

And does anyone know why?

Some nights I dream so much it disturbs my sleep :/

Yes, adderall leads to shallow sleep, so when you get off you sleep more deeply and remember dreams more. Using dreams are common. I still have one every once in a while.

You don't enjoy it? Vivid dreams were my favorite things to experience once I got off the Adderall. Maybe you're stressing about something in your waking life, which is causing a not so flattering dream? That tends to happen to me a lot during times of high stress.

Yeah, I have major stress going on right now.. Crazy stuff going on. It's not like the dreams are all bad, or bad at all.. They seem to wear me out though.. Feel like the mornings I wake up not feeling rested were the nights I dreamt a lot. Is that weird?🙄

Your mind and body has a lot of emotions to process, so I believe it's normal that you would wake up tired. Dreams often remind us of things and really make us wonder, which always requires energy.

 

Have you tried the guided sleep meditation videos on youtube? I've only done it once but it helped me fall asleep a lot easier and in a much calmer state of mind.
