Very similar: The 2 drugs you are on have near identical mechanism of action. I am not sure that I would prescribe both drugs at the same time to one patient.

How come I used to have more serious bad dreams when I was 5?

Normal: Many people have more frightening dreams as young children than they do as they grow up. Maybe what happens is that our brains are gradually better able to understand what is happening around us... What is really frightening and what is not. ...Read more

Sleep Clinic: In many cases Alprazolam is not even close to the best approach to solve your problems. I always recommend getting help from the sleep clinic.
