Re: Anyone TAKE EFFEXOR XR AT NIGHT? KIMMMIE

I'm taking half in the morning and half in the evening (75mg each). It makes me drowsy for the first couple of hours, then has a more stimulating effect later; don't usually have trouble getting to sleep.

Working well so far, though it's only my third week, and first week at this dose.

Can't give a balanced view on how long it takes 'cos I switched from another AD (paroxetine) but I felt some effects from (a few hours after) the first dose (75mg 1x daily, morning) - mood lift, relaxation.

I find that by the time I wake up, the remaining effects are mild - so you might take a few days to notice become aware of even the immediate effects (let alone the useful AD effects) if you take it at night. The morning dose kicks in rather dramatically for me - I feel a bit "messed up".

> I TOOK MY FIRST EFFEXOR XR 75MG LAST NIGHT.I HAVE NOT HEARD OF ANYONE ELSE WHO TAKES IT AT BEDTIME. IS THERE ANYONE ELSE WHOSE DOCTOR PRESCRIBED IT TO BE TAKEN AT BEDTIME? WHAT KIND OF RESULTS ARE YOU GETTING AND HOW LONG BEFORE YOU COULD TELL THAT IT WAS WORKING? I CAN NOT TELL ANYTHING YET. I CAN'T TELL THAT I HAVE TAKEN ANYTHING. IS THAT NORMAL?
