Indications

Effexor XR is an antidepressant medication used to treat major depressive disorder, anxiety, and panic disorders. Venlafaxine is a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRIs) that alters chemicals in the brain to help increase balance.

Venlafaxine inhibits the presynaptic reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine. These chemicals are neurotransmitters which send messages between cells in the brain. The medication helps them stay in the gap between cells for longer, improving their availability.

The Effexor Xr dose prescribed will depend on the person and condition being treated. Always follow your doctor’s directives.

  • Take with food
  • Take capsules at the same time each day
  • Swallow capsules, do not chew
  • For ease of use you can open the capsule and sprinkle the medication into applesauce
  • For depression, most start by taking 75mg divided per day
  • For anxiety, most start with 75mg once a day
  • For panic disorder, most start with 37.5mg per day

FAQ

What is the difference between SSRIs and SNRIs?

SSRI drugs stop serotonin from being reabsorbed too quickly while SNRIs like Effexor Xr prevent the reuptake of both serotonin and norepinephrine. These brain chemicals are neurotransmitters that send messages between nerve cells and Effexor helps them stay in the gap between cells for longer. Increasing the availability of both neurotransmitters helps this medication treat both depression and anxiety.

What does XR or ER mean after a drug name?

XR and ER are short for extended release and refers to the form of the medication. Extended-release capsules are formulated so the drug is released into the body slowly over time. Thanks to this formulation, the medication can be taken less often and may cause fewer side effects.
