... makes me antsy, so I definitely can't take it at night. The directions say to take it with food. However, at the time of day I take it, I can't have food containing calcium or iron because of the thyroid medication I also take. So very often I do not eat when I take my Effexor or I eat a snack an hour later. I think I can tell a difference in my restlessness (foot tapping and so on) and in my level of emotional tranquility but I have not paid enough attention to be able to connect those things to whether or not I ate with the Effexor
I never had more then my oj and toast with mine. It seemed like that was enough.
I always took Effexor at breakfast time. I don't think it is a matter of how much to eat. I have taken it on an empty stomach with no problems at all. I took 150mg for years and always at breakfast time, often with just a yoghurt, as I don't eat a lot at breakfast.
