To save money, doctor switched to generic
venlafaxine and not an extended release either, and i plummeted. So I am going back to effexorXR. Beware of generics, the drug companies are pretty much on a honor system, and the generics often don't work as well as name brand. I'm still learning about medications, and reading up on them online, like www.mayoclinic.com that has a drug section, is helpful. Hope you find the right medication soon.
