Hi :)

I have been on effexor for 3 years, 75mg XR. I find that the time I take the dose affects my sleep. I have to take it mid afternoon, if I take it in the morning I get the yawns by late afternoon and often take a nap, if I take it late night I get weird dreams and trouble sleeping.

As I am withdrawing from xanax, slowly. I am noticing it's a bit harder to get to sleep so I take an over the counter antihistimine to make me sleepy.
