Effexor (venlafaxine): Unfortunately their is nothing similar to Effexor (venlafaxine) that is cheaper. There is a generic that is cheaper, you should get that if you are taking name brand. you can not just stop effexor, (venlafaxine) you have to wean down very slowly. You will have severe symptoms if you don't. You could have a seizure, you will have flu like symptoms and will have a shock like sensation in your head.
