Night Terrors

Night terrors is a sleeping disorder that is different from nightmares. Unlike bad dreams, the sleeper will enter a state of terror or panic. They sometimes begin screaming, thrashing, or get out of bed. When they wake up, they usually have no memory of the event.

How do you stop the night terrors that seem to be associated with taking Strattera?

Strattera is a drug. As such, it will affect different people, in different ways.

Consult your physican, and see if a different dosage, or different drug would give you more favorable results.

An antidepressent, or other treatment may ease your anxiety. Avoiding refined carbohydrates will help stabilize your moods if you are either Hyper- or Hypo-glycemic.

Do aerobic exercise, and drink plenty of water, to help your body expel stress hormones, and fatigue your muscles, so that your body can sleep better.

A behavioral psychologist, or spiritual counselor, may help you address mental or spiritual sources of your anxiety.

You may also investigate having a Sleep Study done. They take about four hours, during which you are electronically monitored and observed.

This evaluation can determine if you have ailments like sleep apnea, which causes a shortage of oxygen, which can send your body into a panic/survival mode.

What age is too old for night terrors?

There is no age limit. Children can often have bad nighmares, but also men that come home from war can as well. To this day the survivors of the Vietnam War can still have "night terrors." Often I have heard they will hide in a dark closet and cover their ears. Trauma can cause night terrors such as being stalked, raped, abused by a family member or even a bad car accident. In children if the parent calms the child down and talks about it, leaves a small light on or, in some cases when they are very young letting them sleep with the parent the child will out-grow it. Unfortunately, unless psychological counseling can help some of the poor vets or trauma victims there is not a 100% guarantee that even psychology can help them. However, I saw a program not long ago (will do the research and post on it) that there is medication to actually block the trauma out of the brain and it's working! It is tested on humans and the FDA is in the midst of approving it and the Army is MOST interested in it. Gee, I wonder why! I promise to post more information on this new medication ASAP

For those of us who actually suffer from night terrors, they are very common. I personally have been suffering night terrors for nearly 39 years now. To that end, I need to take a sleep-aid each night if I wish to have a 'restful' sleep. Though I still dream (and the terrors still occur) I am not aware of them.

How are nightmares different from night terrors?

A nightmare is one of those dreams where, when you wake up, you thing "Oh, thank goodness. It was only a dream." Then you roll over and go back to sleep.

Night terrors are dreams so vivid that you wake up thinking that the incident actually occurred, and may continue to think so until you are fully awake. Most people have them once or twice a year. If you are having night terrors regularly, you need to consult a professional and get some counseling. Frequent sleep disruptions are extremely bad for your physical and emotional health. Whatever you do, don't drink or take sleeping medications to avoid them. They do nothing to correct the underlying problem, and you will become dependent on the booze or meds to help you sleep, just adding another layer of problems.

This question cannot be answered in terms of "ever." Each person is an individual, and it is not impossible that someone, somewhere, at some time developed some sort of phobia as a result of night terrors. But generally speaking, the one problem would not necessarily cause the other.
