What side effects did anyone else have with Effexor XR and how long did they last?
Its my second day taking it and I’ve had the worst insomnia and irritability especially at night. In the day I feel nervous. It’s really annoying me but I know it’s just a matter of time that the side effects will (hopefully) go away

    Have you asked about changing your dose or the time of day you take the medication? This may help with some of those side effects.

    So far I notice I get really tired after taking it so I have to take it before I sleep

    I had no side effects but I do know getting off Effexor is really hard because of the brain zaps you get from withdrawl

    Also it didn’t start working as good until I started Wellbutrin too
