After six months of tapering off slowly I am five weeks Effexor drug fee . My nights are still disturbing . My dr tells me eight weeks before I am symtom free as my brain is still adjusting . I tried melatonin,low dose . It really helped that night but did not like feeling groggy the next day . I also get very agitated through the evening ,not the day . Probably lack of sleep !
Hopefully week six will be better . I also tried the odd Ativan at night to help me sleep but took a looonggg time to work . Good luck and it feels like forever but each week I see a difference .
