> I have been on Effexor XR 150mg for about 3 months. I have such a hard time waking up in the morning that I've even missed several days of work and now my job may be in jeopardy. I have to at least lower my dosage, or try to get off of it. Since I have the capsules, can i just take one pellet out each day... and do it like that... like 1 today... 2 tomorrow... 3 next, etc. I am really scared to go off... I felt what the brain shivers were like when I had missed a few doses before.... I don't want to go thru that, I could BARELY function... walking into walls... Please, I really need someone to see me thru this, and I really need some advice on going off... talking to my doc (fam doc btw) isnt an option... I dont think he knows anything about this DRUG. Thank all of u again who had to go thru this already and have posted... you are all my heros :-)

I had been having some trouble with sleep. The doc added 15mg Remeron to the Effexor. I take the Effexor XR in the morning, and then the Remeron at bedtime. I sleep much better. About an hour after taking it I get very sleepy, and wake up feeling rested the next day.

Let me know how things go for you. Whatever you decide, I hope you feel better.

Feel free to ask me any other questions.
