Venlafaxine ER Experience/Questions

I know what I’d do - skip the dose, suck it up with the consequences and start in the morning. But, I’m generally considered reckless on that front. So, maybe instead call your pharmacist. Also, as insomnia is a known Effexor side effect, if it gets really bad you might switch over to amitriptyline. My endocrinologist saw that on my list of rescue drugs and assumed I took it for insomnia.

I agree with Emily, that’s what I did when I did my switch, I did this when I was still at a low dosage so maybe that’s why I didn’t feel much of side effects from the switch but at the same time venlafaxine was the easiest med for me compared to the other 2 I tried before

Thanks Emily and Diana. That’s what I figured, just bite the bullet and do it.
