Hey Jan, Good to see ya over here
. I take Effexor Xr and have worked my way up to 225 mg a day. I am supposed to take 150mg in the morning and 75 mg at noon...the Effexor seems to give me a little energy boost, this is how my psych wants me to take it. But I just take the whole lot in the morning as I would forget the noon dose, having to break them up like that. I dont have problems with the Effexor not making me able to sleep, I can even nap in the afternoon once my little buzz from it wears down alittle...;) I do take Lunesta at night but I do have MS and have lots of muscle spasms that cause me not to be able to sleep so that helps greatly. I was very leary about
going on Effexor at first but am glad I did as it is working very well for me.
