  • Does anyone?

    Does anyone take Effexor for Depression and or anxiety? I am just curious if it is going to be IC friendly. I took it last night and sleep pretty good, but I kind of feel groggy today, not sure if it is connected or not.
    Any information any one has on Effexor would be most helpful. Thanks,

    I take Effexor XR and I love it. I have minimal side effects. The only thing is I must take it before 3pm or I can't sleep.

    I used to be on the old fashion Effexor and I hated it b/c if I missed a dose I would vomit, but this does not happen on the XR.
