just pass two weeks on the increased dose of 225 mg of effexor. Well, I m sweating less, no nauseas, no tearful any more. But god do I fell moody. Wish I could laugh again. And most evenings when I can't sleep before twelve I get anxious and take diazepam. I was use to sleepat 8 the latest. Of course, mornings still the worst time for me. Don't feel like dying anymore but extremely miserable. I'm thinking of asking for another increase on effexor. Or is it what I'm supposed to expect and maybe another two weeks will do the trick. Please any advice based on your experience will be really appreciated it. My doctor will prescribe me almost anything I ask him for. Thanks
