After a short pause I started to take melatonin again. I'm very tensed and suffer from nervousness. Now I sleep better but I have lots of very intense dreams and even night mares.
Is this an effect of melatonin or does this depend on me?

Dear Irina,

melatonin makes one sleep deeper and this is why people have the chance to reach the rem-phases and dream. This are the restorative phases of the sleep, which make us feel fitter.
So you have this dreams, because your sleep quality is better and you reach rem-ohases. But the content of the dreams are fully up to you. If your are tensed or nervous, this might create nightmare. But look at the bright side: going through this dreams, your brain resolves a part of your problems and this benefits to your health.
