Is it safe to use venlafaxine hydrochloride in the treatment for depression?

i study pharmacy in Europe and never hared of this substance for depression so i think you don't take medicine by ear and go see your doctor and take what you get prescribed Answered by Frankie Moffatt 3 months ago.
Patent on the drug has almost elapsed. As most anti depressants are long term medication there will be little use in starting to take them (in the view of the manufacturer that is) That is probably why they are out of use. Also there has been a lawsuit n 2004 due to the discontinuation side effects of the drug. Websites on the subject are closed. Answered by Modesta Froncillo 3 months ago.

I'm so angry all the time, I feel like my blood is literally boiling with anger. Really stupid insignificant things are irritating me and I'm not dealing with it that well. Really I wondered if any of you have had the same experience and if it ever goes away? Thank you to any of you who can give me some reassurance! Answered by Quentin Rances 3 months ago.
I had a lot of withdrawal symptoms coming off Effexor XR, very similar to what you experienced as well as electric zaps in my head (I have no idea how to describe them better, lol). What I finally did was go back up one dose and gave myself a little longer to get on an even keel, then went down...even to the point where I was taking one at the lowest dose every three days. I had to go back on another anti-depressant due to some situations in my life, but if things ever got worse with the horrible panic attacks, ongoing anxiety and major depression, as hard as coming off the Effexor was, I would take it again.

On the pamphlet it says drinking is not recommended... but that doesn't mean I can't right? That's just something they say on all medication... Right? I love to drink wine and beer with meals and occasionally I go out to social events where I would be drinking 1-2 bottles of wine to myself (with plenty of food). When these events come up, what would be the best way to approach them? Can I just drink normally, drink a little less or skip a pill for the day? Answered by Sharri Burcham 3 months ago.
I wouldn't recommend it if you don't want to get physically ill. I was put on Effexor (150mg) at the beginning of February of this year. About a week after being on this dosage, I went out and had a couple of drinks - Vodka and OJ. I've been on other anti-depressants (Paxil, Luvox) and never had a problem with getting sick while drinking and taking those meds. But I can tell you that with Effexor, it's a completely different ballgame. Anyway, the next day (Sunday) I woke up with a SEVERE headache that would not go away despite taking Advil every 4 hours. I also felt nauseous and threw up three times in a span of minutes. I couldn't stand up and walk by myself because I was very weak and unsteady on my feet. I have NEVER felt this sick. In retrospect, I should have probably gone to the hospital. I have a high tolerance for liquor and have only gotten sick from drinking twice in my entire life (I'm 47) so I figure that the combination of drinking and the Effexor did me in. In addition, I would recommend skipping a dose because you will definitely feel sick if you do (nausea, brain zaps, increased anxiety, etc..), Effexor is an SNRI and works differently than the other drugs I was on before (they were SSRIs). I think that the way Effexor works does not mix well with drinking. This was my experience but yours might be different. I certainly hope it is. (FWIW - I'm coming off of Effexor and going back onto an SSRI. Effexor is doing nothing for my depression, anxiety and OCD and it's caused me to lose 1/2 of my hair volume in less than 3 months.) Answered by Ethel Keinonen 3 months ago.
You won't get drunk while taking Effexor XR, however you will destroy your liver very quickly, and cause other serious side effects as well as making the drug MUCH less effective than it would be without the toxic alcohol in your system. You really should not drink at all while taking Effexor XR or regular Effexor. I know, I take it. I've taken it for years, am I nurse aide, and plus I have already done enough reserach on this drug to drop a horse. Unless you don't value living, or the sound of being hooked up to a dialasis machine sounds fun to you, you need to stop. But, your life, your choice. I just think it's the dumbest move you could make on your part, you mise well have your Doctor start to wean you off the Effexor if you are more concerned with getting drunk than anything else in your life. Especially your own health and safety. There's no use taking Effexor since you are canceling the delivery of the medicine into your system anyway. You're messing with the daily dose which gets into your system, killing your liver, weakening your heart, and doing other damage that could be beyond repair. Don't quit cold turkey (the Effexor) because it's side effects are horrible if you don't wean off. Best to give Doc a call and let him know what's up, and how often you are drinking, and how much. I'm sure he can find you a antidepressant that is much safer for alcoholics to take. Mrs. B Answered by Aubrey Cassell 3 months ago.

Effexor XR (venlafaxine hydrochloride) extended-release capsules is indicated for the treatment of major depressive disorder.

They are probably beta blockers. So they basically block the bad chemicals that make you feel depressed from getting to your brain.

Before asking, I will state I have been discussing this with my Dr. I am in my mid 20's and seem to have a very low amount of energy every day. My desire to perform even basic tasks seem daunting. I dislike getting out of bed and want to sleep almost all the time. I am not lazy at all, except in action. In my mind I have great desire and motivation. But, actually doing this seems to be such a struggle. About a year ago my dr gave me a sample of Effexor at 37.5mgs. The day that I took this I was feeling the best I ever have in my entire life! I had insane amounts of energy, focus was crisp, and I was completing complex tasks with ease! Workouts were a lot easier and sexual benefits increased. After a week, while still taking the same amount, these benefits were gone! It has been almost 2 years now and I'm at 225mgs and still missing the same feeling. I'm also trying 20mgs of generic aderol to see if this helps. I can't seem to get back to that same initial state, or even near. Help! Answered by Jonnie Monsky 3 months ago.
US Brand Name: Effexor Generic Name: venlafaxine hydrochloride Class: Antidepressant, specifically a multiple reuptake inhibitor Read up on these sections if you haven't done so already, because they cover a lot of information about multiple medications that I'm not going to repeat on many pages. I'm just autistic that way about not repeating myself. FDA Approved Uses: Depression, General Anxiety Disorder Off-Label Uses: Bipolar Depression (so not recommended), Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Chronic Fatigue, Multiple Sclerosis, Lupus, Headaches, Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), ADD/ADHD, Eating Disorders Effexor's pros and cons: Pros: There are two last resorts among the modern meds to cure the deepest, blackest depression when your doctor is just switching you from one horsie to another on the med-go-round: Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) and Remeron (mirtazapine). Either in combination with an antipsychotic would really get you out of that hole of despair, but first you should throw away every mirror and scale in your house and buy expandable clothing. But for deep, despairing clinical depression that needs to respond to the standard tweaking of the three most popular neurotransmitters, Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) often pulls people out of the abyss. Cons: For many people Effexor has the absolute worst discontinuation syndrome of an antidepressant. Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) is a medication people utterly loathe to have taken. It is not uncommon for someone to fire doctors during or immediately after they quit taking Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride). Effexor's Typical Side Effects: The usual for SSRIs and SNRIs - headache, nausea, dry mouth, sweating, sleepiness or insomnia, and diarrhea or constipation, weight gain, loss of libido and a host of other sexual dysfunctions. Most everything but the weight gain and sexual dysfunctions usually goes away within a couple of weeks. Although some women will notice that the sexual side effects will diminish above 200-225mg a day when the norepinephrine kicks in. Maybe. For tips on how to cope with these side effects, please see our side effects page. Effexor's Not So Common Side Effects: Increased or lowered blood pressure, sweating, farting, anorexia, twitching, shock-like sensations. Also alcohol intolerance and/or alcohol abuse. So Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) is going to be just the thing to talk about at AA meetings. I used to have these last two listed as rare side effects, but I've received way too many e-mails and have read far too many similar reports on various other sites after putting up this page about both of them. As is often the case here, the anecdotal evidence will often trump what is in the US PI Sheet. Best guess to date as to why both of these side effects can happen - Paul of Leeds (in the U.K.) posits that Effexor's broad spectrum use of liver enzymes probably interferes with alcohol clearance and tolerance, thus leading to the type of alcoholism that affects people without the proper enzymes to effectively metabolize alcohol. Between that and the way Effexor works your liver, you're probably better off giving up booze entirely if you're taking this med. These may or may not happen to you don't, so don't be surprised one way or the other. Effexor's Freaky Rare Side Effects: Someone's reflexes increased and someone else's breasts got bigger, proving that there is no pleasing some people. Someone else's hair changed color and, really, no Revlon was involved. But the most disturbing freaky rare side effect with Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) is what Wyeth disingenuously calls "withdrawal syndrome," that once you acclimate to Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) you are basically hooked for life. The discontinuation syndrome never goes away if you try to stop. For someone with unipolar depression that's a pain in the ***, but something you might be able to work around barring any really adverse side effects, but for someone who is bipolar you can be royally screwed because Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) can really aggravate mania and especially rapid cycling. I've been getting a few e-mails and reading a few reports about how Effexor has caused Effexor users, as well as friends and relatives using the med to really hit the booze, so alcohol abuse may not be that rare a side effect after all. You aren't going to get these. I promise. Although I make no promises about the alcohol abuse. Interesting Stuff Your Doctor Probably Won't Tell You: Few, if any doctors, will discuss the possibility that Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) could become a permanent part of your life, whether you like the results of Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) or not. Granted that is a very rare adverse effect, but it does happen. It's hard enough to get them to discuss SSRI discontinuation syndrome., let alone get them to admit that Effexor's symptoms are the absolute worst and the longest lasting of all serotonergic drugs. The discontinuation from Paxil (paroxetine) is bad enough, it's much, much worse with Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride). And the way Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) works on neurotransmitters is very complicated. Your doctor may or may not explain this to you. Here's how it works: First it starts to work on your serotonin. Then somewhere around 200 mg a day it starts to work on norepinephrine. Then around 300 mg a day it starts to work on your dopamine. Mileage will vary for each individual, and there's no guarantee on getting all that much dopamine action. Effexor's Dosage and How to Take Effexor: Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) comes in immediate and extended release flavors, although hardly anyone takes the immediate release form anymore. Just be sure to check your prescription for that XR to make sure you are getting the extended release form. For the XR flavor, you start at 37.5 to 75mg a day, taken with food, at either breakfast or dinner, depending on if you're apt to get wired or tired. Once you get the wired/tired issue straightened out, you take the med all at once at the same time every day. If you start at 37.5mg you can move up to 75mg after a week. As with any antidepressant, it takes a month to feel any positive effect, so give it a month. Seriously, don't move up above 75mg a day for at least a month. You'll know if it's going to do anything then. If you feel nothing, give up and take a much easier discontinuation. After that you can move up in 37.5-75 mg increments, allowing at least a week between each increase until you reach the maximum of 375mg a day for the most severely depressed of patients. The older immediate release version is pretty much the same, except that the dose is divided into two or three doses a day. Days to Reach a Steady State: Three days. When you're fully saturated with the medication and less prone to peaks and valleys of effects. You still might have peaks of effect after taking many meds, but with a lot of the meds you'll have fewer valleys after this point. In theory anyway. How Long Effexor Takes to Work: Up to one month. Effexor's Half-Life & Average Time to Clear Out of Your System: Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) does the double metabolism trick, so its half-lives are 3-7 hours and 9-13 hours. That means the combined half-life is anywhere from 12-20 hours, so it takes anywhere from two to five days to clear out of your system. This is a huge part of why Effexor's discontinuation syndrome is so harsh. No popular SSRI does the double metabolism, and the half-lives of each metabolism is so bloody short. So while you clean out of one metabolite, you still have another one in your system. Your body is completely confused! Wyeth states in the pharmacokinetics section that there's only one active metabolite worth mentioning. Who the hell knows about other metabolites and what part they play in Effexor's discontinuation syndrome, or how long you should take in stepping down your dosage! How to Stop Taking Effexor: Your doctor should be recommending that you reduce your dosage by 37.5mg a day every week if you need to stop taking it, if not more slowly than that. For more information, please see the page on how to safely stop taking these crazy meds. You shouldn't be doing it any faster than that unless it's an emergency. Yes, that means if you've maxed out at 375mg a day it'll take 10 weeks to get off of Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride). Believe me, it's better that way. Also, once you get down to that last 37.5mg a day, ask your doctor for a Prozac (fluoxetine) prescription or samples. Generic fluoxetine will even do. 10mg a day is all you need. Even with the proper discontinuation stopping the last 37.5mg can be hellish. Taking two weeks worth of Prozac (fluoxetine) will make the discontinuation a lot easier. So when you're off of Effexor and you cannot function, get on the Prozac for a week or two, then stop taking the Prozac. You'll find you'll have either no discontinuation syndrome, or it won't be nearly as bad. If you've worked your way up to a particular dosage, it's usually best to spend this many days at the next lowest dosage before going down the next lowest dosage before that and so forth. This is the least sucky way to avoid problems when stopping any psychiatric medication. Presuming you have the option of slowly tapering off them. Comments: This is a multiple reuptake inhibitor, acting sort of as both an SSRI and NRI, so be sure to read up on all three classes of meds, as those pages will cover a lot of stuff common to all meds similar to Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride). Everybody hates their meds because of the costs and the side effects, but people just loathe Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) because the discontinuation can be so harsh; it's the med everyone wishes they never took. Yes, people will change doctors because some doctor had the nerve to punish them with Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride). Yet for many people it is a godsend, because the combination of serotonin, norepinephrine and dopamine reuptake is literally just what the doctor ordered for the darkest of depressions. Of course Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) has to be complicated about it, it can't just work on everything all at once from the beginning. Oh, no. First it starts to work on your serotonin. Then somewhere around 200 mg a day it starts to work on norepinephrine. Then around 300 mg a day it starts to work on your dopamine. Mileage will vary for each individual, and there's no guarantee on getting all that much dopamine action. Of course as you up your dosage to get to the next neurotransmitter, you keep pushing the previous neurotransmitter, whether you need more action on them or not. And that's what leads to problems, and why people have to stop taking Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride). So they stop taking it from a higher dosage, and they stop taking it quickly, and they learn about things like brain shivers. For people in the bipolar spectrum Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) should really be the last of the modern antidepressants that is tried. I feel that the risk/reward benefit runs too high on the risk side of things. More than most SSRIs Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) is likely to trigger not just mania, but rapid cycling. Combine that with the very rare, but still real chance that you could be stuck taking Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) for the rest of your life, even if it doesn't work. That complicates things greatly in Bipolarland. Try everything else first, and if you just react badly to SSRIs, forget about Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) entirely. As for unipolar depression, if you're in the blackest pit of despair and your doctor recommends Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride), go for it. What? You don't think I care about you people? I do. For people with unipolar depression a lifelong addiction to Effexor (again, this is a very rare side effect) is just a pain in the ***. Of course Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) works with popular liver enzymes, so there would be dosage adjustments required for some meds, and you'd have extra side effects for having to take 37.5-75mg of Effexor every day, but it wouldn't be making you manic or triggering rapid cycling. As long as the reason why you had to stop taking Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) wasn't too bad, and that reason isn't too harsh at the low dosage, the exceedingly small risk of permanent Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) maintenance is well worth running when weighed against the benefits you'd potentially receive with Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride). Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) is also approved for GAD. Yet it frequently makes the anxiety that is part of bipolar much worse. I can't honestly give a good risk/reward analysis for Effexor (venlafaxine hydrochloride) and anxiety. Given the experiences I've read of everyone who has taken it for bipolar and depression, I'm surprised it was even approved for anxiety. Manufacturers: Wyeth Answered by Lawanda Mucha 3 months ago.
There are more than a few problems with the current system, and I'll get there, but I have a question first. Have you ever had to pay for your own insurance? Even on COBRA we paid $600 a month when my husband was making $10 and hour and I was self-employed. I was pregnant with a baby that cost $12,000 to deliver. So I ask you, if I couldn't afford the insurance, how could I pay for the health care? When I get a statement from my company, it says "your doctor billed us $200, the allowed amount was $27.50, you paid $20 and owe nothing." Not that I want to pay the difference, but how do you run a business this way? If I sent my power company a check for 1/8 of the bill and told them that was the alotted amount, they'd laugh at me. A lot. Last thought: All of the other industrialized countries, our trading partners, have some sort of nationalized health care. That means that their corporations pay much less for any supplemental insurance offered. They probably don't pay for retirees at all. American businesses cannot compete with that. Although the numbers you cite above are good, you're missing the bigger number - the cost of health care has dramitically increased in that time period.(I've seen the number, though I can't recall it. It's extrememly high) Medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptacy in this country. The life expetancy in 1950 was maybe 60? People are living longer, getting more tests, taking more meds. You can't fault people for getting sick (or me for being pregnant at that moment. It worked out that way, and we were covered for the delivery, for which I am grateful). Nor can you blame them for wanting competant, thorough medical care. They sent her home because she had no insurance. That's horrifying. Answered by Ria Hauf 3 months ago.

Does Effexor xr or cymbalta contain MAOIs?
or what type of antidepresants contain MAOis?
Asked by Willena Hoelscher 3 months ago.
efexor (venlafaxine) contains the active ingredient venlafaxine hydrochloride, while Cymbalta contains duloxetine hydrochloride. Both are a type of antidepressant known as a serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). This type of medicine acts on nerve cells in the brain. If you are taking any anti depressants which are MAOI's, you must stop taking them at least 14 days before you begin a course of SNRI's. MAOI's (e.g. Nardil, Parnate) This group has been around as long as the Tricyclic Antidepressants. For those who cannot tolerate or have been unsuccessful with other antidepressants, MAOI's may be the best pharmacological intervention. However, there are potential dangerous interactions with a number of foods and medications. They contain a chemical called tyramine, which can raise blood pressure if it is not destroyed before it reaches the bloodstream. Many of the foods to be avoided are high in protein such as cheese, hard sausages (pepperoni, salami) or pickled herring. Also several varieties of wine and beer (but not distilled liquor) must be avoided. In addition, this drug should not be taken with pseudoephedrine (Sudafed), diet pills containing Dexatrim and most other antidepressants. Possible side-effects include lowered blood pressure, sexual dysfunction, weight gain, sedation, dry mouth and constipation. Answered by Cherelle Seitz 3 months ago.
