Venlafaxine Overview

Venlafaxine, sold under the brand name Effexor among others, is an antidepressant of the serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI) class.[4][5][6] This means it increases the concentrations of the neurotransmitters serotonin and norepinephrine in the body and the brain.

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?

Dr give me Venlafaxine ER 37.5 I took 1 pill a day after a week increase to 2 pills a day.. well I finish the medication and my Dr didnt give me refills so for 5 days I had the most horrible withdrawals so I started to take Bupropion hcl xl 300mg twice a day and by the second day I fealt great.Now my question is this. Did I made a mistake by taking the Bupropion twice a day to stop the withdrawals and Now that I have the Venlafaxine should I started to take it again or should I keep taking the Bupropion xl 300mg twice a day. Iam just affraid to go to the withdrawals of the medication. ## There are no severe withdrawal effects to these types of medications, unless someone's been taking them for a very long time. If you'd only started recently then you may have experienced some mi...

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...
