A 36-year-old female asked:

Not a good idea: Effexor &#40;venlafaxine&#41; should be taken in the morning to improve depression, increase mental energy, and to prevent insomnia. If you take NyQuil because you cannot sleep, you might benefiting from the 25-50 mg of diphenhydramine &#40;Benadryl&#41; on it. Please seek advise regarding insomnia right away to prevent further problems. Check your blood pressure regularly because Effexor tends to increase BP.
