Sleep paralysis and terrifying dreams - are there medications that can cause that?

In brief: PERHAPS
If you also add daytime sleepiness, or sleep attacks, you are describing "narcolepsy", and indeed, there are several medicines that help.
Recommend you see a neurologist, or pulmonologist with sleep disorder experience, as this can readily be solved. Although some medicines do disrupt sleep, it is more likely that you possess a sleep disorder.
