> LynnPerley, same thing for me. If I have more than 2 drinks i tend to stay up late. Last night 1:00am, night before 2:00am. I'm no spring chicken at 36yrs old. thanks again for you comments.
> Lynnads, what is your current dosage? I just can't (i can) stop the craving for beer I've been been having 2+ drinks on the average of 5 days a week???? not good. Anyway, i was just curious how much you are taking, since you mentioned that effexor seems to be working for you.
> Thanks Lynns!

Hey Lucky,

I too have been having strange cravings for beer! I could easily have one or two beers a night (as a matter of fact, I am getting the craving right now :| ). I never used to be this way. Luckily, my neighbor is always stocked up. :) Anyway, I am on 150 mg and since starting, it takes more beer for me to feel any effect. Where as on past meds, I would feel the effect of the alcohol almost imedately. The alcohol doesn't seem to cause me to be any more depressed than otherwise, but I do assume the combination of the two aren't too good for the liver.
Can I ask how long you have been taking Effexor and what kind of side effects you have endured if any? I am pretty new to this med and not so sure I like the side effects I am having. Not to mention that after reading different posts from people trying to come off of Effexor, it worries me a bit.
