> I know that we all react to things differently, but most of the things I have read here have scared me. I took my first dose of Effexor XR 75 mg tonight. The label said that I cannot operate heavy machinery with it, so I took it at night. My doctor told me to take it in the morning. Should I have done that? Do you get better results that way?? I am just wondering if I should deal with my symptoms without this medicine. Yikes.
Jennifer, I take Effexor-XR 375 mg/day, and take it all in the morning. It doesn't keep me from operating machinery or anything. The only problem I have since increasing the dose is problems sleeping. I don't have any other side effects I know of. Remember that the side effects vary from person to person, and you may experience none at all (esp. on a low dose). Talk with your pdoc and start slow (I started with 37.5 mg/day, then after a week, went to 75 mg/day, etc.; that seemed to minimize any side effects).
