In brief: Yes

Almost all antidepressant suppress rem sleep with the exception of 3.
Rem is the stage of sleep where dreaming occurs. It's also the stage of sleep we get the most refreshing and restorative sleep. First you should discuss this with your doctor and make sure the night terrors are not side effects of other medications you're already taking.

Sleep terrors occur in deepest slow wave sleep and you wouldn't have memory of those, you are probably meaning nightmares, can try rem suppressing meds, talk to your sleep specialist.
