Is using natural galanthamine for dream control or lucid dreaming dangerous?

Not likely. Not in low dosage of several milligrams used for this purpose.
I would not. Galantamine (galantamine (galantamine hydrobromide) hydrobromide) increases cholinergic activity in the brain, which can cause more dreams. Like any medicine, galantamine (galantamine hydrobromide) can have side effects. I would not recommend taking it to cause more vivid dreams.
