Re: Effexor, Sleep and Sex

Now That was brave, Janey! My initial response to the sex question was "Sex? What sex?"

I've been taking 150 mg Effexor for 3 or 4 weeks now, and did notice a tremendous improvement in my depression, but not the anxiety. So I started with Buspar, 15 mg, then 30mg. I'm still having problems with general anxiety. I've not heard of Buspar for sleeping, but I found Trazodone to be a miracle cure for no sleep. I take between 50 and 100 mg of that, although I'm not sure if I'm supposed to play around with the dose on that.

One thing about the Effexor, is that I've noticed excessive fatigue throughout the day. Plus, I feel like lately I'm sliding back somewhat. I don't know what to make of all the differing opinions about all of these psychopharmaceuticals. It is evidently an art, and every doctor has preferences (My internist disagrees with my therapist who wonders about the psychiatrist. It truly makes me even more worried to think about it!)

I apologize to George for not having much of value to help you with the dosage/sex question.
