I had the same problem. I switched to the night as well. When i switched I did not have any side effects.
I will say I don't sleep at night so i hoped it would help that but it did not help, for some reason at night it does not make me tired like it did during the day. But i was always a night person anyway.
Good luck with your switch you should be ok.
Hi, it is really down to personal preference. The majority of people take Effexor in the morning, but some feel it works better for them taking it at night. Give it a try. You may experience some side effects at first but soon you will know if it will be better for you...
Hi,I tried changing my dose to night time due to tiredness. The only problem I found was that I'd begin to feel withdrawal symptoms the next day at around 5-6pm or sometimes earlier. It might not have that effect on you. I'd be prepared for some strange dreams to start with. They did wear off as time passed. Good luck x
I have this same fatigue response no matter what time I take it. I no longer make morning appointments. It has had serious negative effects on my life. 75mg. I have had lung cancer and have serious anxiety attacks. Have tried lexapro but never slept with that.
