> I'm on 300 Effexor XR and supposed to be doing 300 of Wellbutrin, but usually only do 200 Wellbutrin because I forget the third pill in the afternoon.

> > I have been up to 375 of effexor xr, but for me it was too activating, side effects such as muscle twitches, restlessness, insomnia, etc. Now I take 300 effexor xr, but also take 300 of Serzone. Actually, I just started taking 325 of serzone because some of the sleep problems have crept back (restless legs causing insomnia). I slept a whole lot better on the first night of this increased dose of serzone.

I have been on 300mgm of Effexor XR for about nine months. I also take a total of
300 mgm of Seroquel a day (in three doses) the "restless legs"(which I call my happy feet
are the only negative thing I have found -- so far the Effexor is the best AD I have
ever ben on. I never experienced any energizing,leg cramping
or other problems. The worst thing is that some my "happy feet wake my
husband up and then I wind up in the guest room!
Oh, I forgot the weight gain -- I really would like to lose the
thirty pounds I gained on Zyprexa --but I think the Effexor is preventing thzt. Will
the recently started Topomax help? Maribeth
