> I'm so excited to have discovered this page! I've been on Effexor for around a year and a half, 150 mg daily (I've tried to take it in the morning, in the evening, and I've split the dose without noticing any differences). It's almost a miracle for me, after 35 years of constant depression I actually feel like I'm living in a colorful, multidimensional world for the first time. . . but, I sleep ALL THE TIME and I'm tired when I'm awake. I've actually started grad school now that I'm not depressed, but I barely have the energy to get through three days of clases, let alone do any of my work. Has anyone else had such low energy?

How can you say you live in a mulitdimensional colorful world..... yet your sleeping all the time. Are you referring to the dreams? Just wondering..... Kristi

> Does anyone have any suggestions? I've tried Wellbutrin, which made me anxious, and I've tried Trazedone on the theory that I'm tired because I'm not sleeping as well as I think I am, but it doped me up during the day.
> P.S., Is anyone else just LOVING their dreams? Mine are a blast!!!
> P.P.S. Since I'm in school, my sleep schedule is wildly irregular. My doc is distracted by this, thinks I need to fix it before we can try dealing with the energy thing--but I've been low energy consistently, and have only been sleeping this irregularly more recently.
