> I started Effexor XR 37.5 mg/day about 10 days ago, so far I've been ok, nausea and headaches went away after 3 days, but the one thing that's really bothering me is I'm cold all the time.

As I have posted before I started this medication 6 days ago now, 37.5mg like you to begin with, but no I haven't had this side-effect at all. Instead, I've been sweating quite a lot during the first few days, but now everything seems back to normal on this side.

At first, it was also really disturbing my sleep, feeling like I had drunk 10 cups of coffee or so just before going to bed, and in spite of the fact that I'm taking the medication in the morning. I must say that I've been having a hard time sleeping for quite some time. But the last 2 nights, I've slept like a baby, 10 hours of deep sleep each night, - which is good as I feel I had a lot of tireness to get rid of, and which I think might be a result of being a bit less anxious/stressed out already.

And as I also wrote before, the only thing that still bothers me is the sexual side-effects. Not sure yet whether or not I'll be able to get used or put up with that.
