The side effects Amy are weird. Everyone gets different effects. Sometimes side effects disappear. Sometimes they don't. If they disappear it could take a couple weeks or a couple months. At this point you could try taking your effexor at different times of the day to see how that helps. Try it in the morning for a few days. Try it at noon. You might find a different time is all you need. I don't know why you can't take coffee. Sometimes effexor raises blood pressure. But I can't see how coffee would make that any worse. Besides, your doses right now are too low to be any worry of that. I've never heard of not being able to have coffee. You think everyone who takes effexor stops drinking coffee? I think not. That might be the whole problem. Not the effexor. Some people get wired up on effexor. Maybe they should cut down on coffee. But quit completely? I just have never heard of that. If you like coffee, I know of no reason you can't have some with effexor. Gallons of coffee aren't good for anyone. But a couple cups a day sounds perfectly reasonable to me. It might just do the trick on those headaches and the tiredness. Just don't have any past mid afternoon or it might contribute to insomnia. Thats all. Hey, go have some coffee for pete's sake! :-)
