I did notice that when the time to take my dose for the day was coming up, I started feeling really tired, this feeling passed. My depression is 80% better now than when I first started on effexor. My doctor plans to keep me on just the 75 mgs along with 40mg of Prozac.

It's good to know the effexor has worked that well for you. I am currently going through a severe depression and effexor has been one of my possible choices if paxil fails for me. Have you have strong emotions with effexor? How about caring or loving emotions? Is your concentration and thinking ability with effexor very good? I need to see if effexor could be a good option for me since I am severely lacking in emotions and concentration.
