Effexor XR (skipping a tablet)
same with me, when I can snap out of the struggle of nightmares, I too am drenched with sweat. I am also quite sick. It only takes one missed dose

I also have CRAZY dreams if I miss a dose. In my dream I'm always trying to get somewhere but never make it - until some horrible thing happens and I wake up soaked with sweat.
