What is Effexor XR used for?

Effexor is used to treat depression, general anxiety disorder, panic disorder, and social anxiety disorder (social phobia). It may improve your mood and energy level and may help restore your interest in daily living. It may also decrease fear, anxiety, unwanted thoughts, and the number of panic attacks.

Effexor immediate-release or extended-release tablets can be used to treat depression. It’s also used to treat social anxiety disorder, only with the extended-release tablet.

You can buy Effexor XR online at My Drug Center. We have the Effexor XR generic, called Venlafaxine, available for purchase as well.


How does Effexor XR work?

Effexor is available as an immediate-release tablet and extended-release tablet for oral administration. It contains the active ingredient Venlafaxine, which is a serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). When taken as directed, the Venlafaxine dosage in the medication will work by preventing serotonin and noradrenaline from being reabsorbed back into the nerve cells in the brain. This helps prolong the mood lightening effect of any released serotonin and noradrenaline.

Before taking Effexor XR or the Venlafaxine generic, read all the instructions and paper work that given to you by your pharmacist. Take your Effexor XR dosage orally once a day. Make sure you take it at the same time each day to create a routine for yourself and to ensure an even spread of the Venlafaxine dosage in your system. This medication should be taken on a regular basis to have optimal results.

The Effexor XR dosage that you take will depend on your condition and your age. Effexor XR may be used as part of a combination therapy. This means you may need to take it with other medications to treat your condition. Take this medication exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not change or increase your dose. You should continue taking this medication even if you feel well.


Effexor XR or the Venlafaxine generic may contain medical and non medical ingredients that could cause an allergic reaction. Be sure to discuss other medical conditions, known allergies, and list any over-the-counter or prescription medications, and herbal products you are currently taking.
