Hi thanks for your answer. Todas is my first appointment with Sleep Medicine expert at Mayo. I will discuss my options. But the last time I came they told me that the protocol for rem sleep disorder is to use melatonin on the long term. People who experience VIVID DREAMS or HALLUCINATIONS while on melatonin usually last 2 months & that after 2 months these symptoms dissappear. I was wondering if theres somebody here that experienced this awful side effect of melatonin and if they find a way to take it in order to avoid the awful vivid dreams

@lorena1egas, I would certainly be interested in what you learn at your appointment with Sleep Medicine today. In particular, I'd like to understand the recommendation about the use of melatonin: Short term vs. long term. I'll also be interested if it is suggested that you take something different since melatonin seems to cause unpleasant sleep for you with vivid dreams and hallucinations. I found this article that helps to explain this:

Lorena, will you report back what you learn from your sleep study?
