Frequently Asked Questions

What is venlafaxine (Effexor) and how does it work?

Venlafaxine is a medication belonging to the family of antidepressants known as selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SSNRIs).

A venlafaxine prescription works by affecting certain chemicals in the brain (serotonin and norepinephrine), which could be unbalanced in people who are experiencing depression.

What are the uses for venlafaxine (Effexor)?

Usually, an Effexor prescription is used to treat major depressive disorder, anxiety and panic disorder.

Venlafaxine has been shown to potentially increase your energy levels and improve your general mood, as well as restore your interest in daily life.

How do you use venlafaxine (Effexor)?

If you’ve been given a venlafaxine prescription online, it’ll only be available as a regular tablet or as extended release tablets or capsules. These are all to be taken orally.

Dosage and frequency of use will depend on your needs and the recommendations of your doctor. This medication should be taken at the same time(s) every day, with food.

What are the side effects and risks of venlafaxine (Effexor)?

Common side effects from taking a venlafaxine prescription include:

  • Constipation
  • Heartburn
  • Congestion or runny nose
  • Chills
  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Bloating or gas
  • Decreased/loss of appetite
  • Weight loss
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Lowered sex drive
  • Strange dreams
  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth

These side effects aren’t a cause for alarm, though you should talk to your doctor if they become severe.

However, you should speak with your doctor immediately if you begin to experience:

  • Severe Dizziness

  • Severe nausea or vomiting
  • Muscle twitching
  • High fever
  • Hallucinations
  • Racing heartbeat
  • Loss of coordination

These could be signs that you’re having a negative reaction to venlafaxine, and you should talk to your doctor before continuing your prescription.

Who should not take venlafaxine (Effexor)?

Even if you’ve been given a Effexor prescription online, don’t use Effexor within 7 days before or 14 days after you’ve used a MAO inhibitor (i.e. linezolid, isocarboxazid, methylene blue injection, selegiline, rasagiline, tranylcypromine, phenelzine).

Combining these medications could cause a severe or dangerous reaction.

As well, before starting an Effexor prescription, talk to your doctor if you’ve ever experienced:

  • A thyroid disorder
  • Diabetes

  • Kidney disease
  • A history of seizures

Some people, especially younger patients, experience thoughts of suicide while taking antidepressants. It’s important to do regular check-ups with your doctor to evaluate your mood or symptoms.

Also, always notify your doctor if you’re planning to switch from one antidepressant to another, because there may be specific steps you need to take to prevent the two medications from causing a reaction.

Venlafaxine could cause severe lung issues in nursing newborns or unborn babies. Talk to your doctor about the risks if you’re pregnant or planning to breastfeed, while taking venlafaxine.

This medication isn’t approved for anyone under the age of 18.
