> I take 300-450 mgs and was already a sweater (thanks dad for the genes !) so I take it at nite b4 bedtime (whole dose) and sleep in a cool room. I am a classical singer and drink lots of water ( 1 gal a day or I don't have the high b natural, c, and c#)

LOL...LOL...Would REALLY tight pants help you reach those high notes (you KNOW I'm just teasing)??? Hee Hee Hee...I'm really getting a good laugh out of this whole forum, today. Thanks everybody!

> Is this person really drinking enough water ? Few people do. For me any time I up the dose or restart Effexor the sweating is worse for a day or so. Moving to the south west helped me also.

I live in Las Vegas, so I too, must drink a lot of water. I also take 300mgs Effexor (half of it at bedtime). It gives me itchy-scratchies (back, arms, legs...only since I've been taking Effexor), sweating, dry mouth (no, I don't sit around all day with my mouth hanging open...LOL).
But, it's the only AD of the many kinds I've tried
that is effective, right now. So, even if this drug kills me, I'm staying on it. Hee hee...but, remember that I'm chronocally suicidal when I'm depressed.

But, seriously, I'm going to have to look into this issue. I hadn't realized, until now, that there may be some deadly side-effects with Effexor.

Thanks for the info.
