effexor and sleep disturbance - dosage timing?

I've been on 150/mg day of Effexor XR, 75 in the am and 75 at night, and 50mg/at night of trazadone.
So far it's working on my depression. However, I have only been able to sleep for about 3 - 4 hrs at
night, plus a 45 minute nap at mid-day. The nighttime sleep only comes after taking the trazadone
(I have tried to skip the trazadone and after 3 hours I finally gave up.) I'm guessing that the Effexor
is the problem since I usually only have trouble sleeping during a depression and that's not happening
right now. I'd like to try moving both doses of the Effexor to the morning in the hope that I'll be able
to sleep; would I get withdrawal type symptoms by not using a split dosage? (My doctor is a general
practitioner with very little experience prescribing this drug.)
