Re: Effexor & Tricyclics?

In reply to Effexor & Tricyclics?, posted by Dave on November 29, 1999, at 20:49:13

> Hello everybody. Due to the fact that Effexor is causing some insomnia, i was wondering if I could take a sedative tricyclic at night to help me sleep. I know doctors prescribe a clearance period of at least four days when changing from tricyclics to effexor, but does that necessarily mean there is an adverse interaction?- especially with low doses (25 or 50mg)of the tricyclic (in this case amineptine)?
> If anyone knows anything about the use or contraindication of these two meds I would greatly apreciate it *p.s in Australia we dont have Mirtazepine or trazodone so I can not use them for Effexor related insomnia)- thanks again *DAVE*.

James here...

actually you can take them both at the same time,
using just anough TCA to get good sleep (25-75 mgs) at nite. I have taken Effexor + TCA (1995-1998) and now Remeron (15 mgs) for sleep.
