... would be a lot cheaper for me to go on the generic but I worry about it.
Thanks so much
Hi, Bev! I switched over a year ago and I've been on several different generics from different manufacturers and haven't noticed any difference at all.
The only problem I had at all is that venlafaxine tastes incredibly horrible. I'd definitely recommend that you ask your pharmacist to make sure you get coated tablets!
Go for it, Bev ~ I think it's worth a try and it's SO much cheaper.
Best wishes, WCV
I have been on Effexor XR for a number of years, but now that it's no longer available they have put me on the generic one. I have been feeling nauseous everyday and after reading your posts, I'm sure its because I'm taking the generic one. There has been no other changes in my meds. Very wary of generics.
