That's interesting. I started Effexor XR at 37.5 mg once a day for one week; 75 mg per day for two weeks and climbed to 150 mg once a day. Once I started the 150 mg, I turned into a functioning zombie..that is work 9-5 then sleep 6pm - 6 am, ready for a new day. This went on for two weeks, and during the weekends, I slept entirely through it with the exception of going to church on Sunday. However, I am through the zombie phase and have begun dreams that feel real, even after waking up, which isn't good if you toss and turn and wake up several times a night either spooked or disoriented.

I spoke with my psychiatrist today and I am switching my time of dosage which currently is around 5 pm to first thing in the morning to see if I can restore my sleeping function.

This is the second time I have initiated Effexor.

The first time I took it, the first day I started in the evening and within one hour I felt like I had an intense orgasm and then just instantly had to go to sleep, even if I didn't want to. This effect took place for four days and the reaction to sleeping changed back to normal. However, everytime I yawned, my body could recall the feeling of the second half of having an orgasm, which was a nice feeling to have all day long.

So my body has reacted differently when starting this drug, but I do still have that yawning now, just not as much, but it does come with the orgasmic/ecstacy sensation. Anyone experience that one?
