Xanax vs Venlafaxine

I would rather have Xanax. They work better than the Venlafaxine 75mg pill marked 93 7382. What are your thoughts between the two? ## These are different classes of medications, Xanax is a benzodiazepine that is most commonly used to treat anxiety, and some pain disorders. It carries the risk of being habit forming, and may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, irritability, and dry mouth. It can usually be taken as needed, and will have some effect within 15 to 20 minutes of taking it. Venlafaxine, however, is an SNRI, it is most commonly used to treat anxiety, and depression. Additionally, rather than taking it as needed, it must be taken on a regular basis, and will take about a month to reach its full level of efficacy in your body. Its side effects may include na...

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...

Adverse effects to aurobindo venlafaxine

My pharmacy just switched generics. Ever since I have been feeling increasingly worse. Today I had a major reaction. Sweats, nightmares, tremors, speech problems. So bad that when I went to my dr she told me to stop taking the medication which I have been on for two years immediately. Now I'm afraid that I'm going to be feeling awful. ## Hello, Karen! How are you feeling? Did you experience any other withdrawal effects? The FDA lists them as possibly including nausea, dizziness, fever, chills, rebound depression and diarrhea. Did you doctor prescribe an alternative? ## I was taking teva brand venlafaxine xr 150 and the pharmacy switched to aurobindo brand and by the end of the day I was in withdrawls brain zaps and dizziness

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, ...

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.
