Not that it matters... If it does, indeed, feel like high dosage Effexor, I think I would pass anyway. But thank you for the info (I remember spending several consecutive nights awake while on 300mg Effexor, not manic, just excrutiatingly tired and too keyed-up to sleep. It was most unpleasant and I wouldn't want to go through that again.)


Hi dose Effexor made me very irritable and anxious. Reboxetine was very tolerable except for the urinary retention and erectile dysfunction.

The two medicines beared no resemblence to me.

BTW, maybe some Zoloft added to the Remeron would help with the hypersomnia? Just a thought.
