Venlafaxine HCl - Overview
Venlafaxine is a prescription medication sometimes prescribed to some people with depression, anxiety and panic disorders. People who might need a venlafaxine HCl prescription, including venlafaxine ER, venlafaxine XR and venlafaxine 75 mg, can soon use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe venlafaxine medication when appropriate to do so.
What Is Venlafaxine Used For?
Venlafaxine is marketed under the name Effexor in the United States. Venlafaxine, like desvenlafaxine (Pristiq) and duloxetine (Cymbalta), belongs to a class of medications known as selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SSNRIs). Venlafaxine is sometimes prescribed for use in patients with certain types of depression, anxiety and panic disorder. Venlafaxine blocks some serotonin reuptake in the same way that the medications citalopram (Celexa), desvenlafaxine (Pristiq), escitalopram (Lexapro), fluoxetine (Prozac), fluvoxamine (Luvox), paroxetine (Paxil, Pexeva), and sertraline (Zoloft) do. Increased serotonin activity is thought to lead to an improvement in symptoms in some people. Venlafaxine also decreases the reuptake of another neurotransmitter, norepinephrine, which may improve the effectiveness of the drug in some people.
Venlafaxine - Dosage and Cost
The starting dose of venlafaxine is often venlafaxine 37.5 mg per day although some prescribers may choose to use venlafaxine 75 mg per day. Ultimately, the prescribed venlafaxine dose depends on the health needs of the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. The elimination half-life after oral venlafaxine administration is under 12 hours in healthy people and most of the drug is eliminated in the urine. Venlafaxine should typically be taken with food and the capsules should be swallowed whole. While branded venlafaxine is expensive, generic venlafaxine is affordable, costing approximately 40 cents per venlafaxine 150 mg capsule at many pharmacies in the United States. Venlafaxine coupons may be found online or through other sources, and some insurance plans will cover costs associated with a venlafaxine medication prescription. Venlafaxine is generally available as venlafaxine 37.5 mg capsules, venlafaxine 75 mg capsules and venlafaxine 150 mg capsules and is generally also found in tablet form.
Can I Buy Venlafaxine Online?
Venlafaxine OTC is not available as venlafaxine is a prescription medication that requires a consultation with a licensed medical provider before it can be prescribed. Because of this, one cannot just buy venlafaxine online as the first step is a consultation. People who might need a venlafaxine HCl prescription will soon be able to use Push Health to connect with a medical provider in the area who can prescribe venlafaxine hydrochloride, including venlafaxine ER and venlafaxine 75 mg capsules, when appropriate to do so.
Venlafaxine - Side Effects
Prior to using venlafaxine, it is important to discuss possible side effects and other concerns with a medical provider and pharmacist. Side effects that can result from venlafaxine use include nausea, sweating, dry mouth, constipation, decreased libido, and difficulty ejaculating. People with glaucoma, abnormal blood pressure and bleeding disorders should typically not use venlafaxine. People taking MAOIs, triptans, SSRIs, other SNRIs, linezolid, lithium, tramadol, or St. John's wort should generally not use venlafaxine. Venlafaxine and alcohol should not be used together. People with an allergy or hypersensitivity to venlafaxine, similar medications or ingredients in the formulation should not use the medication.
