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?

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.

My mom started taking venlafaxine hcl. Is that a generic version of effexor?

My mom started taking venlafaxine hcl. Is that a generic version of effexor?

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.

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.
