I was prescribed Effexor, 75 mg. going up to the 150 mg. a day I take now. I was having trouble staying awake, especially when driving any distance at all, so on my own I decided to take it right before bedtime because I do have trouble sleeping at night - - proof - - here I am at 12:30 A.M. and have to get up to catch a plane at 4:30. I also take Lunesta for insomnia.
Has anyone else had this problem with Effexor? I was taking Paxil and my doctor changed me to Effexor. I also have the sweating side effect, which is just miserable.
