      I'm not entirely sure, it seems like it would suppress recall though, but possibly not the REM stage. You just don't recall the dreams as well.

      Here's an old thread that talks alot about sleeping pills and their effects on dreaming in general: http://www.dreamviews.com/research/1...-dreaming.html

      Hope that helps

      Valium definitely does interfere with the sleep stages and given benzodiazepines cause memory loss and black outs, it most likely plays a role in inhibiting dream recall. So the answers to your questions are yes and yes.
