Venlafaxine is an antidepressant that is used to treat depression. It works by increasing the level of the neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain.
Venlafaxine is used to treat major depression, social anxiety and generalized anxiety disorder. It can also be used to treat pain syndrome in patients with chronic pain.
The mechanism of action of Venlafaxine is to increase the amount of serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain. This leads to improved mood, reduced anxiety and improved sleep quality.
Who should take Venlafaxine?
Before using Venlafaxine, you should consult a doctor. The doctor may prescribe the dosage and duration of treatment depending on the patient’s condition.
Side effects of Venlafaxine may include:
An overdose of Venlafaxine can cause serious side effects such as seizures, cardiac arrhythmia and cardiac arrest. If an overdose is suspected, you should immediately seek medical help.
If you missed a dose of Venlafaxine, you should take it as soon as possible. However, if the time of the next dose is approaching, skip the missed dose and continue taking it as usual.
