Venlafaxine

Venlafaxine is a prescription antidepressant drug. It is a first-line therapy among patients with depression. It is also indicated for the treatment of conditions like:

  • Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
  • Social anxiety disorder, an extreme fear of interacting with other
  • Panic disorder, a sudden unexpected attack of worry and fear
  • Major depressive disorder
  • Melancholia, persistent depression and fear

Venlafaxine belongs to the group of drugs known as serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). It works by increasing the levels of serotonin in the brain. It also helps increases the level of norepinephrine, a natural chemical in the brain that acts together to relieve pain and to brighten the mood.

Why Buy Venlafaxine?

Venlafaxine is one of the most commonly used prescription anti-depressants in the U.S. It is the same active ingredient found in the brand names Trevilor, and Lanvexin. It is approved by the U.S FDA for the treatment of anxiety since 1993 and panic disorder in 2005. The generic Venlafaxine is always cheaper in cost than the brand names but both offer the same effectiveness.This medication is available here.
