Our expert says:
These sound like fairly ordinary nightmares, and it sounds as though you are being helpful in a very sensible way. Though usually more dramatic and noticeable in children, nightmares are quite common in adults, and usually need not cause concern. The old idea that it can be dangerous to waken someone in a nightmare isn't valid it's typical not to recall the content of the bad dream by the next morning.
In the situation you describe, it's quite likely that the medications she is taking may well be encouraging these bad dreams, as many ordinary drugs can : antidepressants, blood pressure pills, etc. Sometimes a reduction in dose of one of these can also spur such dreams. At present it sounds as though they understandably concern you, but that she is not troubled by them. Should they become more troublesome you could consult her own doctors, otherwise maybe let sleeping wives rest ?
