Taking effexor plus added stress - suggestions?

Posted by LynnPerley on January 12, 2003, at 22:20:37

I've been taking Effexor XR for 10 mos, and settled in on a 225mg dose about 4 mos. My husband is a military reservist and is about to be deployed. Needless to say, my stress level is going up. I'm in a pattern of having trouble falling asleep for several nights in a row, then I'm so exhausted I collapse early and sleep for a long time (if possible). The effexor is wonderful for anxiety - I would be really bad off now if I had not been taking it already. I've tried adjusting the time I take effexor to earlier in the evening, to no avail. Does anyone have any experience with something I could add to take occasionally in the evening that won't make me too tired in the morning?
