Have hallucinations in the morning. Taking cymbalta and metoprol. Seeing things in detail which are not real. Need help

Hi, I have morning (upon wakening) hallucinations. I take Cymbalta 90mg. and Metoprol 25,mg BID. I have been taking these medications for quite a while and never had these hallucinations before. They happen everymorning upon wakening and seem to be circular in shape. A circle of bees a round spider or crab. All kinds of random things. And when the object is like a ball of yarn or tennis ball etc. they are always spinning. They are very detailed and realistic. They use to scare me but I have become aware and they don t unless they are really close to my face as they are there the moment I open my eyes. My counselor doesn t feel these have a mentle health base. Can you help me??? Taylor from Idaho

Hi there ~

Cymbalta is not known to commonly have this side effect of hallucinations. Dreams close to waking up is associated with a normal physiological process. We tend to remember these dreams as they occurs during the early morning hours when we are waking up. It is however interesting that you are having the same kind of dream all the time. I would not give it much though however and try to distract yourself. Hope you are practicing relaxation exercises like yoga and pranayama. It is also useful to have good sleep hygiene and night time habits. I hope this helps. Consult a doctor if this problem persists and is causing you to have problems during your daytime.

Take care and have a good one.
