> Please do let me know how it works. I have been so glad for it, especially on nights when I know I'm supposed to get up early. Its such an awful feeling. It just cools you down, and is amazing for an upset stomach.

But most medications, for me in the beginning made me feel I was either pregnant or had food poisoning. Even if I didn't drink. I would definately stick it out for at least 6 weeks, unless its absolutely intolerable.

Thanks for the info. on the peppermint oil - sounds like a wonderful remedy! I still get queasy sometimes in the morning if I take my blood pressure pill on an empty stomach, and sometimes have stomach problems at night. Maybe this will help!

The 37.5 mg. dose I take of Effexor still seems to be making me feel a little loaded when I first wake up in the morning - even after several months of taking it - but that's okay! I'm sleeping fairly well through the night most of the time now, although sometimes I want to sleep a lot on the weekends when I don't have to do anything. It only takes a little while for the cobwebs to clear out of my brain, and it's keeping the fibromyalgia pain under control, which is why I'm taking it.
