Interesting question, M. But actually, there's no necessary connection, so far as I know, between therapeutic levels and levels at which or from which one might be able to experience withdrawal effects. Its not a question of the blood level falling below the therapuetically effective level that causes the symptoms, but the manner in which one's brain receptors to various neurotransmitter chemicals are re-adapting to the absence of the drug, and how the neurotransmitters themselves are re-adjusting.
Nightmares do seem to trouble some of us when on some ADs, but I haven't seen a very coherent patterns either to predict which of us would be so affected, or by which ADs.
