> They are very different because Tofranil (aka imipramine) affects many other neurochemicals effexor doesn't. I also think Effexor still mostly works on serotonin and then at higher doses on norepinephrine.

This is just me but I also find sleep is much better with the Effexor added, actually a bit less with less dreaming which I find yucky. I have lots of evidence and material that says most depressives get way too much rem (dreaming) sleep and EffexorXR is one of the most powerful rem suppresent antidepressants out there. I hope that helps you a little bit anyways. Marc

I would disagree with you on this--that most depressed people get to much REM sleep--when I was--and am depressed I sleep very poorly--thus is the reason I am on Trazadone to help with the sleep Effexor wont give me--just my thoughts be well
