In brief: Alcohol?

What you are describing happens when you wake up from rem sleep.
Melatonin has nothing to do with it, it is not an fda approved medication, and I am not sure why you are taking it. None of the medications you listed is expected to cause vivid dreams. Alcohol, and certain sleeping pills could do that. Recovering from sleep deprivation (long work nights) can precipitate it.

In brief: Vivid dreams

Of the 4 meds you take, the interaction between the Soma (carisoprodol) & the melatonin is the most likely cause.
They both increase sedation, so you may be dreaming more frequently. If it's Soma (carisoprodol) w codeine, the effect may be even more profound. I'd suggest not taking the melatonin first to see what effect that has. If no change, then stop the soma (carisoprodol).
