    I take antidepressants for depression and I’ve just changed from citalopram to sertraline, and I’m having the most vivid, weird dreams!!! They don’t really bother me, if anything they fascinate me.

    Some of them are pretty scary, but it’s not just that they are vivid. Sometimes I can FEEL what’s happening..?

    Last night I dreamed I need an operation and they had to cut open my chest and put and tube through my heart and lungs (ikr) but they couldn’t use anesthetic and it bloody hurt! When the tube went through my heart I could actually feel it and hear it, it was so weird! For ages I had this pain in my chest as the dream went on.

    Is this normal??? Have any of you had dreams like this?

    I'm on a high dose of Citalopram, and one of the main side effects I get is vivid dreams, virtually every night. I haven't actually 'felt' any of them, but sometimes I do wake up and think 'what the heck was that about?!' As far as I know, it's a normal thing to happen
