I am on Klonopin in the morning and a little higher dose in the evening. I haven't had "vivid" dreams, but I can say that I have been having some dreams. I am not used to dreaming though because I have insomnia. The Klonopin has been helping me sleep so probably put me in a different "level" or deeper level of sleep so I am more able to remember my dreams. They aren't disturbing dreams are they?

I take Klonopin at night and I have not had any vivid dreams, although I think I am having SOME dreams, I just don't really remember them now. I used to have very fitfull sleep with lots of vivid bad dreams that would plauge me all day. The Klonopin is very relaxing for me and actually allows me to shut all that crap out before bed. That's just my experience on it so far.

Hi DawnMarie and All-Cat:

I guess I should hav said "more than usual" dreams, rather than "vivid."

I'm on low-dose (.25 mg) klonopin, at night, and it just seems that I'm having way more dreams than ever before.
But, it may be, like one of you said, that the medicine puts me in a more relaxed sleep.
No, the dreams are not disturbing......Jerry

i dont think K has much effect on dreams, however by calming you it may make the dreams easier to remember

i find the opposite to be true in my case..
i've always been an extremely vivid dreamer.. really, it's uncanny.. i would dream every single night.. i could remember ever bit of a dream.. i could go to sleep the next day and continue the dream.. almost like a tv series, *lol*..

after starting ativan, i hardly ever dreamt.. and when i did, it seemed like a very clumsy act.. also, the times i did happen to dream, leaned more towards nightmares..

.. but like someone said.. it might just be encouraging a deeper sleep than you've been used to.. and that could explain the vivid dreams..
