My daughter is on 150mg of venlafaxine and takes this in 2 doses about 8am and 4pm - she has terrible night sweats that wake her up - she gets wringing wet and sometimes has 2 showers a night. The disturbed sleep is making her feel really low at times. The psychiatrist told her not to take the medication too late/close to bedtime but I wonder if 3 doses at 7am, 3pm and 11pm would be better.
