Medications most certainly affect your dreams.
Perhaps as you continue on the meds, you will notice a decrease in these annoying dreams. Or, you could end up not needing the meds and then go back off.
Because I have bad allergies, I usually wake up around 5:00 am (and I don't have to work, so its annoying) stuffy and sniffling. I take an antihistamine and go back to sleep. That's when my dreams become weird, disjointed, and not at all enjoyable. There is always an element of stress to them.
I attribute it to the antihistamine, and so I have a choice....don't take the pill, and then cannot sleep because of the sniffling, or take the pill, and have the odd-ball dreams. I am already on a steroid nose spray, and the over the counter non-drowsy pills do nothing for me, so I'm in a bind that way.
I look forward to the first freeze, which will kill all the grass and ragweed that is currently making me miserable, so that I can stop taking the pill which causes me such creepy dreams.
I share this so that you know that you're not alone, and that yes, even seemingly innocuous drugs will cause strange dreams.
You may want to talk to your doctor, there is perhaps another drug in the same class which won't cause the irritating dream issue.

When I did go off of them for the last time,
it was like a weight was lifted off my shoulders that never returned,
and I hope it never does.
I now choose to allow the depths of my soul to come out, and instead of fighting the feelings of depression and anxiety, I embrace them and look deeper as to why I feel like I do.
It gives much understanding.
It is always nice to know though, that if I do need them again, they are there.
Always keep that in mind, if you feel yourself slipping, you can return if there is a need.edit on 7-10-2012 by Darkblade71 because: (no reason given)
By the way i had a weird dream that you may have an idea what it meant maybe? It was about this man(whom i've never seen before. In real life, however i know him from somewhere). But he wasnt a human being, he was a desincarnated entity. Seemed we had some serious attraction, and in the dream itself while he was talking to me, i had like a flashforward, being able to see what would happen if we were together. So i saw, he was going to possese my bf's body (i dont have a bf now neither i know the man in the dream) during intercourse. So we could b intimate together. Much later i was going to get pregnant of him, the entity. And in my 9th month this same spirit would push me into the fireplace so we would be always together or something like that.

Yikes, that is a crazy dream!
But then, most dreams are crazy.
As you get more in touch with yourself and puking rainbows (my daughter does that!
), you are going to have these kinds of dreams.
They are meant to make you question yourself and your own motives, secret desires, and pull towards what ever your soul wants out of life.
Along the way you will run into several different strange and wonderful things, and some things not so wonderful but yet, still, that carry messages to you/about you/for you.
You must have a deep dark passion filled life, and with that comes the darker passions and desires.
Where you focus, even if you do not realize it yourself, that you are doing it, is what you will experience, so if you have dark deep passions, this is a reflection of those.
