    I've been taking venlafaxine for several years at different dose levels (225mg at present) and it has worked for me. I've not noticed it making me sleepy, although I take mirtazapine too and that does help me to sleep at night.

    Hello.  I have been on Sertraline and then went onto 150mg Effexor daily.  It took away my depression and anxiety pretty much.  side effects vary from person to person.  What oner may get another will not, so difficult to say what side effects you will get. 

    How long have you been taking the Venlafaxine?  Are you getting any side effects?
