I used to take Effexor 75mgs every day. I was miserable. I could not sleep. My doctor said that after being on the medicine for one month, I should be able to sleep because my body would be adjusted to it. WRONG!!!! After taking it for 6 weeks, he finally took me off of it. I was so happy. I have never taken Wellbutrin, but my husband has. His psychiatrist told him that 150mgs wasn't strong enough so he upped his to 300mgs. Talk about a different person. I thought I was living with a monster. He walked the floors all night long & couldn't sleep during the day. And I guess I should mention he was taking Effexor at the same time. Having discussed this problem with his regular pcp, he was taken off both meds and put on something milder and now he sleeps like a baby at night. I am taking celexa 20mgs @ bedtime for my depression. And I sleep all night with it. If I miss a day or two, I do not sleep.
I wish you good luck with your meds. I don't know how long you have been on your meds but if you still can't sleep after a month, you should discuss it with your doctor.
My wife takes 150 mg of wellbutrin and 300mg of effexor and the trouble she has is staying awake not sleeping she could sleep anytime ...goodluck in finding the right mix of meds
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change; courage to change the things I can;and wisdom to know the difference.
I take 300 of Effexor and for a while I was taking wellbutrin with it. I can't remember the dosage, but it made me really jumpy and I couldn't sleep either. I went off the welbutrin and that went away.
