Effexor XR and Effexor are both venlafaxine. Effexor is an immediate release tablet, that dissolves soon after you take it. Because venlafaxine has a short half life, you have to take it several times a day. Effexor XR is an extended release capsule that gradually releases the medicine over time so you only have to take it once a day. Both are available in generic.
