> > I have been on Effexor xr for about 6 weeks now,and I must say it has killed my appetite and I have lost about 6 pounds already.People are starting to comment on the weight loss.I just don't pig out like I used to.I think its an effect of the drug rather than an effect of the way I feel now,as I can eat but only in very small portions.I feel full very quickly.I agree with the feelings about being happy to be alive.I too,feel that now for the first time in at least 3 years.I do have some side effects with Effexor,being the jaw clenching(I can deal with that now,its only right after I yawn,which is always when I wake up:same thing every morning, which is how I know its the Effexor),also I can't seem to reach orgasm as easily,I seem to get nearly there but can't quite get over the last bit,so to speak ,I CAN orgasm but it takes a lot of effort.I too wake up in the night.I take Effexor after my evening meal and I usually wake up around 2 or 3.I can relax and go back to sleep fairly easily.That said,although these might sound like a lot of problems,they are nothing in comparison to how much better I feel overall.Effexor has been a life saver for me,my family and my marriage.
> I have the same problems with Effexor. I was constantly hot and wake up soaking wet. I had horrible headaches. I have the same trouble with sex and it's getting to the point that it's really affecting things. We're newlyweds!! I was extremely drowsy....actually I was exhausted. I also woke up during the night quite frequently even though I was on Trazadone (sleeping aid)!
> Now, my doctor has put me on a lower dosage of the Effexor and started Wellbutrin. I've been friggin insane since I started the Wellbutrin. I have zero patience and my anxiety is out of control!!
> Anyone have any suggestions???
> I recommend that you try taking the Effexor in the morning. You might sleep better at night.

Thanks..I'm going to try taking it in the morning!!!!
