What Is Venlafaxine Used For?
Many people may wonder, "What is venlafaxine used for?" Venlafaxine is prescribed to treat depression in adults. Antidepressant medications, such as venlafaxine, are often used along with counseling or therapy to treat depression. Occasionally, venlafaxine can also be used "off-label" for the treatment of other conditions, such as fibromyalgia, hot flashes during menopause, diabetic neuropathy, or obesity.
What Is Venlafaxine Used For? -- An Overview
Venlafaxine hydrochloride is a prescription medication used to treat depression. It is sold under the brand name Effexor®. It is also available as a generic, sold as Venlafaxine tablets. Finally, there is an extended release form of venlafaxine available as Effexor XR®. There is no generic Effexor XR available.
Off-Label Venlafaxine Uses
On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend venlafaxine for treating something other than the conditions listed above. This is called an "off-label" use. Venlafaxine is used off-label to treat the following conditions:
• Diabetic neuropathy or other neuropathic pain
• Fibromyalgia
• Generalized anxiety disorder (GAD)
• Hot flashes during menopause
• Migraines
• Obesity
• Obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD)
• Social anxiety disorder (social phobia).
