Effexor XR (venlafaxine) is an SNRI medication predominantly used to treat depression and anxiety disorders. It is also sometimes used to treat nerve pain and other conditions.

The XR in this product indicates it's an extended release formula. Effexor XR is taken just once per day, compared to 2 or 3 times per day with regular Effexor.

Patients under age 16 will require modified dosing if taking Effexor XR, and patients up to 24 years old may require additional monitoring at the start of treatment.

Getting Started with Effexor XR

The medication works by normalizing levels of neurotransmitters in the brain. Imbalances of the neurotransmitters are associated with disorders like depression and anxiety, and restoring them to more typical levels often helps patients tremendously.

Effexor XR is most often used to treat:

  • Major Depressive Disorder (MDD)
  • Generalized Anxiety Disorder (GAD)
  • Social Anxiety Disorder (SAD)
  • Panic Disorder

Though generally not the preferred treatment in other psychiatric conditions, Effexor XR is sometimes used when preferred treatments fail to produce significant results.

Effexor XR comes in both tablets or capsules, both of which should be taken with food. Tablets must be swallowed whole. Capsules can be opened and the contents sprinkled on soft food, which should then be swallowed immediately without chewing. Integrity is important for both tablets and the pellets inside capsules; they should not be split, crushed, chewed, or otherwise damaged; this destroys the extended-release effects and allows too much medication to be absorbed too quickly.

Effexor XR is taken just once per day. It can be taken at any time of day---usually morning or evening---but once a time has been chosen, it should be adhered to.

Treatment is strikingly similar in most cases, though there are slight differences.

For MDD:

  • Treatment starts with 37.5 to 75 mg per day.
  • If the initial dose does not produce significant results, dosage may be increased in 75 mg increments every four days, up to 225 mg per day.
  • Most patients find 75 to 150 mg sufficient.

For GAD:

  • Treatment starts with 37.5 to 75 mg per day.
  • If the initial dose does not produce significant results, dosage may be increased in 75 mg increments every four days, up to 225 mg per day.
  • Most patients find 75 to 150 mg sufficient.

For SAD:

  • Treatment starts with 75 mg per day.
  • There is no evidence that higher doses will produce greater benefit.
  • If 75 mg per day is insufficient, consider alternative treatments.

For panic disorder:

  • Start with 37.5 once per day for 7 days.
  • If 37.5 mg is not sufficient after 7 days, increase dosage to 75 mg per day.
  • If needed, dosage may be further increased in 75 mg increments every seven days, up to 225 mg per day.

Dosage rarely exceeds 225 per day in any condition outside of a hospital setting.

Treatment should continue for as long as it provides benefit, usually 6 to 9 months. Higher doses and longer duration of treatment are associated with increased risk and severity of side effects.

Ending Treatment

Effexor XR should not be stopped abruptly; withdrawal effects are likely, and can be quite unpleasant. Treatment should be gradually reduced over time, usually in 75 mg increments per week. Some individuals will need a personalized discontinuation plan; speak with a doctor.

Risks & Warnings

The most common side effects from Effexor XR are usually mild and often stop occurring as the body adjusts to treatment, including:

  • Nausea
  • Drowsiness
  • Dizziness
  • Dry mouth
  • Appetite loss
  • Constipation
  • Insomnia
  • Sweating

Effexor XR can interact with a wide range of other medications, both prescription and over-the-counter. Some of these interactions are potentially serious; patients are strongly encouraged to consult a doctor or pharmacist before mixing medications.

In younger patients under 24 years of age, SNRIs sometimes have a paradoxical effect of worsening mental disorders in the first few weeks of treatment. These patients are often monitored more closely than other patients at the start of treatment. Symptoms to watch for include:

  • Increased anxiety or depression
  • Increased hostility or aggression
  • Suicidal thoughts or behaviors
  • Irritability
  • Agitation
  • Hyperactivity

These effects are very unlikely to develop in older patients.
