effexor and insomnia

to everyone out there who has posted about not being able to sleep on Effexor, let me just say that i feel your pain.

my pdoc increased my dose from 150 to 225 last week.  and now, i'm not sleeping well at all.  even with the nightly nortriptyline.   last night i resorted to 3 mg of Klonopin (my usual dose is 1 mg, a couple times a week), and 25 mg of hydroxizine, just to fall asleep.  and sleep i did, for about 11 hours.  \]

i feel much better today.  thank goodness i have that leftover hydroxizine, it's pretty potent.

anyway, i had forgotten that i'd have to do the side effects all over again. so here's hoping the next few weeks pass quickly.  :-)
