> I was on Effexor XR 150 mg for about six months last year and did not have any problems. I tapered off, relapsed, and went built back up to the same dosage. Funny thing, this time around I experienced side effects such as headache and insomnia. I used to take it in the am, but after three months of having to take restoril or xanax for sleep, my doc suggested taking it at bedtime. I was skeptical but I have been able to fall asleep on my own after about the third day. Hang in there. P.S. I tried melatonin, sleepy time tea, ect all to no avail. What sleep I did get was very broken and not restful. Now I can't wait to hit that pillow!!

I take 225mg of Effexor XR, and yes I have problems sleeping. I take 50mg of Trazadone at night to augment this. I take 150mg in the am and 75mg after dinner.
