For the last month i have been woken up by vivid dreams with palpitations up to6 times a night. This is severely disrupting my sleep as well as being very scary. Has anyone else experienced this and if so, have you any suggestions as to how I can cure myself of it. The doctor has given me zopiclone which helps a bit sometimes by making me more relaxed when the palpitations come. I would like to know if this something that other people have experienced. I am now on 8and half of pred and also taking bisoprolyl (betablocker) which i suspect is causing the bad dreams.
