Question from Eagles: Are nightmares a common side effect of menopause?
Answers - Mindy Goldman, M.D. I am not aware of nightmares being a typical sign of menopause; however, many women notice sleep disruption and may not be able to enter into the deep REM phases of sleep. It may be possible that with disrupted sleep cycles, that normal dreaming doesn't occur. Women may experience nightmares, however, I'm not aware of research that's been done in this area.
