TNo, it still has a bit of the stimulant effect for me, since it also works on epinephrine, oh and I don't have typical cataplexy. I've been told there may be a spectrum with regard to intensity.

I take both in the morning and at bedtime. I feel like a walking pill cabinet anyway, so I can't single Venlafxin out for any5hing other than helping with depression ( which it does very well for me! I also take Wellbutrin for depression. I think that one potentiates the other.

I take Venlafaxine, it has helped with my depression. I wouldn't even know if it caused fatigue, since I'm always tired. I take it in the AM.
