Especially when taking Ambien at night before, does taking Effexor XR in the morning exacerbate the feeling of sleepiness and sluggishness at midday and afternoon? Would taking the Effexor at night work better, or should the two not be taken close together?

When I was on Effexor, my doc recommended taking it in the morning because it didn't make me tired, just a little wired. Everyone reacts differently to their meds. As far as taking it at night, I wouldn't think it would be a problem. Check with your doc first. Good luck to you and hope the meds are helping.

Definitely ask your doctor about this. Everyone is different.
From what I know, I THINK Effexor XR might have something in it that is supposed to help with energy throughout the day. I KNOW it should be taken at the same time every day for it to work the best for you. I have always taken it in the morning (if that helps any... )
Good luck, and don't forget to talk to your doctor! :)
