Effexor and Insomnia - Normal?

Recommended Posts

I've been on Effexor for about 2 months, but only on the full dose for about 3-4 weeks. I take 75mg twice a day. I feel better on this drug than I've felt in years. It has really helped me with my depression and my anxiety.  I haven't noticed any side effects at all. No tiredness, no sexual side effects, nothing. Except insomnia. I can't sleep to save my life. I can usually fall asleep easily but I will wake up within an hour and won't be able to sleep the rest of the night. Is this normal with Effexor? I really don't want to switch meds because it seems to be working so well for me but I don't know how long I'll be able to go with so little sleep.
