Effexor XR Sleep/Wake State

Hi all!
Just wondering if anyone can relate to this. I am on 112.5 mgs of Effexor XR. I find that my dream state and wake state seem to be a little fuzzier on this drug, i.e.: my dream state seems to start as I'm falling asleep, not once I am already deeply sleeping. What I mean is, I notice little dream-like sounds and images as I'm falling asleep and in the weird state between consciousness and sleep. I'll hear little sounds, and "see" bizarre dream-like images flash before me (with my eyes closed). This is a little hard to explain, but I figure anyone who knows what I am talking about will be able to relate. This phenomenon has been present all my life, but is certainly more noticeable on my Effexor. Anyone know what I mean? I'm wondering if I can blame the Effexor for this one... Thanks in advance!
