I take Effexor XR 75mg and at one point it seemed like all I did was sleep. I went through a lot of different stages with different side effects since starting Effexor XR but have found them to subside generally with time. I think it was after my dose was increased from 37.5 to 75mg I went through the sleepy stage but not right away. The initial effect of Effexor for me was activating and I had difficulty sleeping. Then I was sleeping too much. This drug has different effects on serotonin, norepi and dopamine at different dosages - maybe that has something to do with it. I'm starting to wake to early again, wondering if it's time for me to increase the dose again.

I haven't taken regular Effexor but the XR form is nice as you can take it just at bedtime if it makes you sleepy.
