Side Effects Of Venlafaxine H Cl 75 Mg
Maybe: Best to take it with food at about the same time every day. Keep track of your mood changes so you can report to your doctor whether or not it is changing. Watch also for any side effects.
Started on 75mg & then 150mg of venlafaxine HCl er. Got sick and it has been 2 weeks. Can I take apart the capsule and go back to ramping up to 150?
Yes: But make sure that you put the capsule back together completely after you have emptied out the portion that you're not going to use. Then take the capsule and wash any powder off your hands and make sure that you do not touch your eyes with any of the powder. When done that way it should be safe. Best wishes.See 1 more doctor answer
Yes: Yes, venlafaxine is the chemical name for effexor. Effexor is a trade name and now there are generic equivalents available. If the prescription bottle says venlafaxine, then it is probably a generic. Effexor = venlafaxine works by essentially enhancing the transmission of serotonin and noradrenaline in the central nervous system. A newer antidepresant, pristiq, (desvenlafaxine) is the metabolite of venlafaxine.See 1 more doctor answer

Out of medication: One simple solution is to simply restart your medication, but you should discuss your symptoms with a doctor first. A walk in center or urgent care center seems more reasonable. Consider a HealthTap consult to help decide what to do.

Nausea and headache: There are of course many potential side effects of any medicine (hence the very thick handouts you get from drug stores). Generally the main adverse effects of venlafaxine (effexor) are short term increases in nausea, headache, and sometimes a transient increase in agitation or insomnia. These generally improve over just a few days.See 1 more doctor answer
Many: Possible side effects: arrhythmias, possible mentation changes and habit forming potential. I have never prescribed it, but per literature review its side effect profile is similar to Phentermine, commonly used for weight loss purposes. In my opinion the risk of using it outweighs its benefits.
Less common: All medications have side effects. Fexofenadine (allegra) is a newer or second generation anti-histamine. It does not cause usual side effects associated with older or first generation antihistamines such as drowsiness, dry mouth, urinary retention or palpitations. Some sensitive persons complains of mild drowsiness. Other listed side effects include headache, heart burn, muscle pain, somnolence.
Both: Can be associated with fatigue -- what symptom are you referring to?
