Late Night Dream Floating Out To Me If you notice that you have more bad dreams after having a late-night bite, make a goal not to snack after dinner, or at least to avoid heavy meals right before bed. Medications: Prescriptions that affect chemicals in the brain such as antidepressants , as well as some blood pressure medications, have been linked to nightmares.
