Hi all – I started a new drug amantadine and found on my final increment to 3 times a day , I started to experience what I can only describe as night terrors . The first time I woke from what I thought was a dream which seemed to overlap my waking up . I shook my husband awake as I thought I could see someone trying to get in the window . It only happens when I wake from my sleep , and my dream seems to spillover into my waking consciousness for a few seconds . They are very real and sometimes quite scary . They can vary from people to spiders to rabbits! I have now decreased the amount of the Meds and this seems to have resolved the problem , but of course it has impacted upon the effectiveness of the Meds ...they are not quite as good as they were.
Is this night terrors or is it an hallucination?
