Aurobindo Pharma Venlafaxine vs Teva and Zylus combination

I have never been successful on the Aurobindo Venlafaxine. I have tried a combo of Teva (150mg) and Zylus (37.5 mg) for 30 days to great success. I want to take the generic version as the brand is over $1000 for 90-days, with insurance. I got the 30-day's worth locally at Publix to try it. Now I’ve received the 90-day prescription from the mail and it’s the Aurobindo brand. Could there be a difference? The one thing my dr is doing this time is she has increased the dosage by 37.5 mg. I don’t know if that is why it’s working or if it’s that it’s NOT the Aurobindo brand? I would greatly appreciate any opinions. ## How much difference is GENERIC FROM BRAND IN STRENGTH ETC? ## I'm not familiar with that brand of medication but I do know that every...

White round pill 93 7382

What is a white round pill with 9 | 3 on one side and 7382 on the other? ## Teva Pharmaceuticals lists this tablet as being a very pale orange, and they list it as containing 75mgs of Venlafaxine, which is an SNRI antidepressant. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, mood changes, and weight changes. Is there anything else I can help with?

VENLAFAXINE HCL 75MG 24HR SA CAP

I have been on Cymbalta for RSD/CRPS pain and my VA doctor wants me to switch to VENLAFAXINE HCL 75MG 24HR SA CAP. She is saying I do not need to dosage down off the cymbalta and to just start taking the VENLAFAXINE HCL 75MG 24HR SA CAP 2x's per day. I am concerned as I do not see anything in the listing for being used for nerve pain. Just for Depression. Can you please tell me if this is used for RSD/CRPS pain? My pharmacist states it will not be effective for the pain. I am not depressed and I am already taking 38 pills per day. ## Hello, Bobbette! How are you? Both of these medications are classified by the FDA as being SNRIs, which means you can switch cleanly from one to the other and they are both used to treat the same conditions. Typical side effects are listed as possibly i...

Venlafaxine generic

My health insurance recently changed my Effexor ER to Tier 3--making it more than 2 times the monthly cost. Has anyone changed to the generic venlafaxine that is not extended release successfully? I prefer to not use non-US pharmacies. I can not find venlafaxine extended release as a generic option in the US--only the regular. Thanks for your help! ## RE: Differences in generic manufactures of Venlafaxine - Would one manufacturer's brand differ from another manufacturer's? The pharmacy said it's all the same. They say the availability of the product is why they switch.

My husband has been prescribed Urbanol 10mg at 7am and 2pm; also Venlafaxine Unicorn XR 75 (for depression), but he says that he has a dry mouth and he lays awake most of the night now. Being a singer, he says this is not working for him. Is there anything else that he can take?

aurobindo venlafaxine - muscle and joint pain

I have taken Venlafaxine XR Capsules - 2 150 mg per day (a high dosage). They were made by the same manufacturer for the first 3 or 4 years. Then, my insurance company switched to the manufacturer Aurobindo. Since then, I have had severe joint and muscle pain, primarily in my arms, but also somewhat in my hands. This pain is so severe that without aspirin, Tylenol, or Aleve, I can barely reach or lift things. Could this pain be due to the change in manufacturerr of my Venlafaxine XR? ## Hello, Debra! How are you? How long have you been taking the one from Aurobindo? Usually, those types of symptoms would be side effects experienced, when first starting such a medication, or when your dosage is raised, as reported by the FDA. When I first started Prozac and each time we upped my dosage, ...

take picture of pill to identify

93 on half of the pill and blank on other side. It's kind of a fat pill. ## I need to identify a peach colored pill with a N on top n a 75 on bottom filled with beads in an oval shape. Not sure what it is. Anyway I can send you a pic to help ## @Cp, Do you happen to know what color the pill is that you're describing? @Lisa, As far as I know, capsules are the only type of pill to contain beads, so I think it's pretty rare to hear about an oval shaped pill containing beads... Might you be referring to "capsules" being oval in the sense that they curve around the edges? I only ask because I located a peach colored capsule with a capital "N" on top of a dividing line, with the number "75" printed below it [in red ink]. This particular pill turned out to b...

Venlafaxine XR coverage changes

I was just informed by my pharmacy today today that my insurance will no longer allowe me to take Venlafaxine XR 150mg twice a day. They are only allowing it once a day. I have been taking this dosage since 1996. I called my psych and she said that my insurance company would not approve a prescription approval to keep me at my original dosage. She said the FDA made this happen and that is why my insurance company (Illinicare/Medicaide) is not covering it. She said that all insurance companies are doing this. I don't know what to do. I went on the internet to find out any info for this change in coverage and found nothing. I was given no explanation by the pharmacist, my psych or insurance company. Does anyone know what is going on here? ## Hello, Jenny! How are you? I am sorry about...

Antidepressants and Sexual Health

I just wanted to take a minute to introduce myself on these forums. My name is Dan and I'm a social worker and I do mental health research. One of the issues that I see come up time and time again, but that is rarely openly discussed in my field, are the positive and negative effects antidepressants can have on sexual health. It's an area I'm researching more now, but am hopeful to converse about the topic here in an effort to learn more myself and to hopefully share some of my research/knowledge/projects too. ## You are welcome on this site, but anti depressants are not good. They've caused more problems than just sexual health. Just like all meds that the government thinks they have to regulate these should be. Instead they think the answer is to let them control what ...

my hematology oncologist prescribe this to me for "hot flashes". I had breast cancer and a total hysterectomy and I can't take hormones ever because my breast cancer was hormone driven.

Venlafaxine HCL ER manufactured by Aurobino contact FDA

I have been taking generic Venlafaxine from Tega Pharma for the past 5 years and have had no issues. My pharmacy is now using the Aurbino manufactured version. I had an extream adverse reaction and nearly ended up in the ED. I was basically going through withdrawal. I reported the event to both the drug company and FDA. Please report any issues you are having to the FDA. I found a pharmacy that had the Tega brand and I was back to normal within a day. Something is seriously wrong with the Venlafaxine Aurobino is producing. Please report your issues so the FDA can take action. ## I am currently going through this same issue. Did you contact your prescribing doctor? ## I've been taking ZA-36 XR for a week and just stared experiencing withdraw symptoms. It's good to know I'm no...

Northstar Venlaxine

I have been taking venlafaxine from Qualitest, the generic for Effexor for at least a decade and the brand prior the generic becoming available with no issues- it worked with no noticeable side affects. Then Publix corporate greed to save a few pennies a pill switched to Nortstar extender without even informing me. By the time I figured it out that Nothstar's venlafaxine was causing my high,depression, chronic fatigue, constant malaise, internal organ and external varieties of pains I had already suffered through many months of these and more shellfish symptoms. Whether it is a placebo and just suddenly cut off all supply of absolutely necessary decade +long drug in my system or contained harmful fillers-who knows for sure. But for certain it messed up my system and life for along time

venlafaxine false drug test

Can venlafaxine xr cause false positive results for methadone in urine screens? Please give me details. ## That question might be hard to find an answer for. If you thought you did get a false positive you should ask for a re-test (confirmation test) using GC/MS testing. GC/MS is the gold standard for any drug testing whether it's a hair drug test or urine drug test. If it was a urine screen also known as a dip test or home test then you need to insist on GC/MS confirmation test. Usually a dip test is reliable but a lot can go on in the human body so it might be possible.

What types of effects did you experience that made you feel that way? How long were you taking it?

venlafaxine hydrochloride 150 mg

Mine says for pain and mood. In what way would this help pain? Or maybe I should rephrase what is in it to relieve pain? ## Hello, Suzette! How are you? It can help with some types of nerve pain, due to it's action in the brain. Many people have had good luck with these types of medications, which means they can avoid resorting to possibly habit forming narcotics. Thus, there's nothing else special in it, it's the Venlafaxine itself that can help. The FDA lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache and dry mouth. Is there anything else I can help with?

Lamitor/Venlor, effects on libido

Hi, I am on Lamitor 100mg daily and Venlor 37.5mg also daily. Which of these has killed my libido? Or is it both? (Horror!!) Thanks. ## Hello, Fiona! How are you? It occurs very commonly as a side effect of the Venlor, which contains Venlafaxine, as reported by the FDA, so that is the most likely culprit. You may also experience nausea, headache, dry mouth, weight changes and hypotension. You may want to consult your medical provider about trying a different medication. Is there anything else I can help with? ## Hi Verwon, Thanks for that. I have since stopped the Venlor and my libido has almoat normalised again so you were tight.. 90% main culprit.
