Ambien with Effexor XR???

Posted by Tracy U on October 15, 2004, at 12:49:00

I am trying to get some feedback.
I have taken Effexor XR for almost 3 years now, 225mg, and just recently increased it 300.
I had a complete abdominal hysterectomy, and 10 days post op, my military husband leaves me and our three boys for duty.
The oldest one is 19, mentally handicapped, so 4 mentally and my youngest one has Tourette's syndrome.
SO, I have been dealing with a lot and trying to survive...
I can't sleep, that's not new, I have had insomnia for years, post traumatic stress from being sexually abused by my dad for years.
Anyway, I got ambien, and read that it can interact with the effexor, but it didn't say how.
I tried a 10 mg, but it didn't help much, and I want to know if anyone has tried 20mg?? If anyone has had success with this,or what?
I am desperate to get sleep, and relieve some of this stress and depression. Anyone have advice/feedback or am I just doomed to get worse and worse until the world swallows me??
