> Has anybody accidentally skipped or forgot a dose and it felt like you were starting all over again? I am on 150 and forgot one dose. I slept for 2 days. In the past, when I ran out for about 3 days, I had the electric head things, severe anger/frustration, the flu-like symptoms, and the sleeping. Anyway, just wondering if this has happened to anyone else. I'm not sure if this is working, but then again, it could just be my stressfull surroundings, too. ....Not giving up yet....

Thanks, Real Name (Not)

> I've just worked up to 225 grams of effexor xr and can't figure out whether it's better to take bigger dose during the day or at night? Please give feedback if this drug causes you daytime drowsiness or nightime insomnia. Do these side effects wear off? I'm also taking 500mg depakote bid, wellbutrin 100mg am and afternoon, topomax 25 mg at night, and klonopin (clonazepam)1 - 2 mg at night and prn for anxiety and panic attacks (about .25 mg occaisionally during the day.) I also am experimenting with ambien and sonata along with the klonopin to see how I'll get the best night's sleep with no side effects. pdoc doesn't want me to take any more antidepressants for fear I may go into a hypomania.
> Thankyou, Mary
