I have been taking Effexor XR 75 mgs for about 5 years. I recently started having more anxiety so my doctor gave me Ativan .5 mg as needed. Has anyone else taken ativan with Effexor XR, and if so, How did it work for you?

I have been taking both for about 2mon now and I love the Effexor. I am also on 75mgs. I take 0.5 mg ativan once in the morning and once at night. When I first started taking it I felt like it worked well. This past week I have not been able to fall asleep untill around 2 am and I need to be up by 6am. So when I first started taking it I slept like a baby all night. Now I don't know whats going on, but It does help me during the day for anxiety. The Efferox is a life saver. Months of trying to find something that worked and this is the one for me. I hope this helps you.
