Pratoman, .25 Xanax in AM .50 mg Xanax in PM, also 75 mg Effexor pm to lesson hot flashes. Met with PCP today to consider Xanax dosage change or drug change. Before Xanax got 4 to 5 hours sleep max this has improved some but not consistently.
Dave (and Ken) Effexor is a SNRI and insomnia is one of the side effects. So I'm wondering why you are taking it at night, or is PM a typo? I take it late morning, usually 10AM-noon, otherwise no sleep.
