I have been taking EffexorXR for about 3 years now. I swing from sleepy to insomnia. My recommendation is that, you change the time of day that you take it. If you get sleepy, take it about 1 - 2 hours before going to bed. You SHOULD wake up in the morning feeling refreshed.
Now, if you already do that, sorry, I don't know what else to tell you.
> I have been on almost all of the SSRI's and had to discontinue them because they have caused me extreme hypersomnia (sleepyness.) I tried choripramime (sp?) which also had this effect. Now I am on Effexor XR (for about a week and a half) and have the same effect. Does anyone else have this problem? It never went away with the other meds, any chance it wil subside with this one?
