Effexor-XR: The side effects of venlafaxine 150mg only comes in "xr" or 'extended release' capsules. Therefore it's not releasing the entire 150mg at once however over a 24hr period. 150mg is a very standard does of venlafaxine it also comes in 30, 75, 150, 220 capsules. There are also lower dose's of 30mg & 75mg xr capsules. Venlafaxine is more known for its stimulating of the brain, rather than sedating effec.
