General Venlafaxine Dosage Information
Some considerations for people taking venlafaxine include:
Venlafaxine comes in tablet form. It is taken two or three times a day, depending on how your healthcare provider prescribes it. Venlafaxine should be taken with food.
Venlafaxine should be taken at the same times each day to maintain an even level of medicine in your system.
- Abruptly stopping medications like venlafaxine can result in withdrawal symptoms (see Venlafaxine Withdrawal for more information).
- For venlafaxine to work properly, you have to take it as prescribed. Venlafaxine will not work if you take it in a way other than how your healthcare provider prescribed it.
- If you are unsure about anything related to venlafaxine or your dosage of venlafaxine, please talk with your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist. Do not stop taking venlafaxine without first discussing it with your healthcare provider.
