Re: Can taking Effexor at a different time...?

I started taking it first thing in the morning (5 to 6 am most days). During the last several days I have gradually moved it to early evening and I'm going to keep moving it until bedtime. The side effect I am trying to avoid is trouble falling asleep at night and then hard to wake up in the morning. So far, this has helped some at bedtime but I still wake up for at least an hour around 3 or 4 am and it is still very hard for me to get out of bed in the morning. Since I get up so early most days, perhaps I can stall the wake cycle until normal wakeup time. I also need to check with the MD to see if I need my dose increased or decreased. I've been taking 150 mg for almost a month now, after one week of 37.5 and one week of 75.
