Dear Sleep Doctors

“Evelyn” in Sparta, TN writes:

Dear Sleep Doctors,
I have always had frequent nightmares, since I was young (maybe due to trauma growing up), but I have
been taking beta-blockers for the past 35 years so I am interested in how to prevent nightmares, or at
least deal w/them better. My husband has an amazing ability to tell himself (during a dream) that this
is “only a dream” and he can wake himself up w/no problem. I seem to get “stuck” in the nightmare, and
wake myself up only by letting out a LOUD YELL/SCREAM, which of course freaks out whoever is sleeping
nearby. I hear the beta-blockers can cause vivid nightmares.

Tune in to hear what advice the Sleep Doctors give Evelyn.


Thanks for reading and thanks for listening. Until next week, pleasant dreams!
