When do you take the Effexor XR? If you take it at night then you should probably take it in the morning for sure. If you take it in the morning already, there could be many different reasons for your insomnia. Definitely talk to your doctor about it. I can give you more info on my experience with it if you tell me when you take it. Let me know! :)
If you are taking the sleeping med, sounds like you need to speak with your doctor about a change. Insomnia is a common side effect of Efffexor, regular or XR, I have had both and had horrible insomnia. My doctor tried tamazapam which helped some but carries with it it's own addictive characteristics. Honestly I came off the effexor and did a sleep study and was found to have mild to moderate sleep apnea, I would not have guessed it. I now sleep with a cpap machine.
