Specializes in Clinical Psychology

Withdrawal: Effexor (venlafaxine) is an antidepressant that has heightened withdrawal effects when people miss doses or try to wean off of the medication than most SSRIs. Three nights being sick, however, are likely due to something other than missing only one dose.
