Advice & Tips: I was told to take this medication in the morning instead of at night. After a day or two, I started having strange and weird dreams. They were vivid and scary at times. I would find myself falling out of bed. I fell out of bed several nights that week. I finally got tired of doing that and returned back to taking it at night. The bad dreams stopped and so did the falling out of bed.
