10 days smoke free now, have used patches with no side effects until the last 2 nights. Last night & tonight I've had very vivid nightmares, not "wake up sweating" ones but vivid enough to wake me up. Strange thing is I then feel awake & have to stay up for a few hours before trying to sleep again

    Hi dpen. Vivid dreams are common on the patch, but i am sure you aware that you can leave them off overnight. Maybe get some gum to kick in faster in the morning if that is a problem for you. I hope you can catch some daytime zzz's to stay calm and on top of things. You can do this!

    Hi Happiness, strange thing is my Doctor said they take 2 hrs to start working then 6 hrs to release the stuff so they recommend putting them on at night. Doesn't worry me either way so I'll put them on early in the morning, loss of sleep doesn't worry me as I've been an insomniac for years lol
