My boyfriend takes Teva-Venalfaxine 75 mg...I noticed hes very sleepy a lot of the time, and slurring his words...Are these common symptoms, or could he have been prescribed to much for him? ## No, that's not common and it definitely sounds like he may be on too high of a dosage, or it just might not be the right medication for him.

Venlafaxine hcl 75 mg
I've been taking venlafaxine for about a year. I'm not a salt user. Lately my feet have been so swollen I can hardly bend my toes, and can hardly walk. Is this a side effect?ch ## Hello, Chopper6869! How are you? I'm very sorry about the problem that you're having. Whether you use salt, or not, you still end up ingesting a plethora of it, unless you specifically read all labels and research all your foods to keep it low. Sodium is in almost everything and it is very high in most processed foods, you even run into in most sweets. As to the edema, you really need to see your doctor about it. There is a chance that it could be due to the start of a possibly dangerous health issue. Are there any other questions or concerns? ...

Venlafaxine ER CAPSULES.
I take Venlafaxine ER 150 MG Capsules. They are bright orange capsules.. Kinda long and has 93-7386 on the capsule. I take one a day. I take it for anxiety attacks and depression. I am pretty stressed most of the time. I really don't think they work that good. I have been on VENLAFAXINE for a little over a year. I'm still nervous.I told the doctor that last week,she said, she was going to increase it. I am still waiting for her to call the pharmacy. I don't know what she is going to increase it to. I hope it works. I was on Zoloft for about 5 years it quit working so she changed me to this. I guess I'll wait and see. ## Your doctor can easily increase the dosage of this, because the extended release formulation can be used in doses up to 375mgs a day for people with seve... ...

venlafaxine hcl er 150 mg cap woc
is the same as venlafaxine xr? thank you. ## Hi Urs! Yes, it is the same, both XR and ER are just abbreviations that denote its being a time released formulation of the medication. The pharmaceutical industry has really gotten carried away with these abbreviations, there are many that are used to mean the same thing, aside from the ER and XR, you may also see CR, SR, DR, CD, LA, XT and others. Is there anything else I can help with? ...

Venlafaxine Hcl 150 mg 24 HR SA Tab
I want to get off of venlafaxine HCL 150 mg 24 HR SA Tab. There is no score line. Can I cut it in half and take just half? ## No, from what you've listed, this tablet cannot be cut in half, that could result in your receiving too much of the medication at once. The SA stands for sustained action, which is just another way of designating it as a time released medication. Learn more Venlafaxine details here. The best thing to do would be to consult your doctor for a proper tapering schedule and to ask them to prescribe a lower dosage, or one that isn't time released to make it easier for you. Are there any other questions or concerns? ## I have been on Venlafaxine for over ten years. I know that I need assistance with my mood / mental state but would like to get off the meds, I do... ...
