I found that when I was taking Effexor XR (at any dose), it made me tired no matter what time of day I took it, but if I took it past noon I would also have insomnia (go figure!).

HOWEVER, when I tried Effexor IR (at a range of doses), I found that it made me sleepy if I took it in the morning, kept me up if I took it past 2 pm, but worked perfectly when I took it all as one lump dose between 11am and 2 pm.

In general I felt heaps better on the IR formulation. I don't know why it isn't presribed more commonly.
