Hi 312: Vivid dreams can have many causes and generally is nothing to worry about. Most antidepressants, including the one you're prescribed commonly cause vivid dreaming.

Yes dreams: Help us process things that are bothering us during the day. They are like windows to our unconscious feelings. Many forms of therapy use dream interpretation to help people understand their feelings and concerns.
