Does Lucid Dreaming or Maxalt cause extreme cases of Deja Vu?

I have lucid dreams about 3-4 times a year. They usually happen in 2 instances; 1. If I am exhausted and take a nap during the day; 2. If I am woken up from a deep sleep in the middle of the night and am unable to fall back to sleep with in a few mins. These dreams used to scare the crap out of me when I was younger. Now I can kind of relax when they happen and can even exert a little bit of control over the dream so for the most part they are no big deal. I usually wake up exhausted and will usually have a headache just as I typically do if I do not get enough sleep. I had a lucid dream a few nights ago, I woke up with the beginnings of an awful headache. I have never taken Maxalt in the morning because it usually doesn't work unless I can lay down for a half hour or so. I took a Maxalt that morning hoping to fend off a nasty headache. The headache went away but about an hour or so later I started experiencing the most extreme case of Deja Vu that I have ever had and it just went on and on and on. It almost felt like I was still in the middle of the lucid dream the whole day. Everything I did that day I felt like I had done it before. When I think about that day its like thinking about a dream its foggy and it feels like I am missing pieces of it. Is this a side effect of the Maxalt, a side effect of the lucid dream, or a combination of both? Maxalt also recently went generic and this is the first time I have ever taken the generic version. Has anyone else ever experienced this before? I'm on no other drugs this has never happened before.
