i started taking it yesterday morning. i've read that many ppl reported it making them feel wired, so i didnt wanna take it at night. i know meds affect everyone differently... and boy did it have an affect on me! it was all i could do all day to keep my eyes open. i felt like a zombie. i finally gave in to it around 4:30. i took a 2 hr nap and my fiance was furious with me. i really couldnt help it. i didnt feel like myself at all when i woke up. i felt antisocial. we had company last night and i didnt talk to anyone. i thought it may be a combination of the skelaxin with it... as well as the hydrocodone (which usually makes me alert and able to get up & go). im gonna start taking the effexor at night. i was just wondering has anyone else experienced this? am i gonna fell like a zombie for the duration that im on this med? it worked fine for my post-partum depression (2ys ago). all comments are welcome! i could use some advice. also, i wasnt able to get up this morning to take my son to school (BAD ME). my fiance works in the mornings & he called & called until i woke up. i feel awful for him missing school. i just wasnt able to wake up. i heard the clocks, but its like i couldnt move... like i was hearing them in a dream. i didnt sleep well at all last night. i guess it was because of the nap. help please?
