Sertraline dreams

Do they get better/stop? I have been on sertraline 3/4 months now - I forget and have the crazy dreams every night. I can't tell what is real and what happened and what is a dream, although some of them are so crazy they are so so vivid and some are really mundane. It makes me feel crazy, but I feel so much better on the sertraline. Do the dreams go away at some point? I'm scared to sleep..

Mine went away but for a while they really scared me. As you say they can be so vivid thwy seem real. Maybe if it doesnt improve soon see your gp again?

I find it helps to talk the dream through with someone as soon as you wake up. If you don't have that option then write them down. Mine went away after about four months. I have also cut out caffeine and more recently sugar which has massively helped with my anxiety.
