i found some in my son's room and really want to know why he had them.
Unfortunately, yes. Venlafaxine (Effexor) has been known to cause euphoria, hallucinations, and an increased libido. However, it can also cause some pretty bad, unwanted side effects-anxiety, hostility, suicidal ideations, and seizures. Hope you can talk with him and find out how long he's been taking them because he could end up messing himself up pretty badly. Hope this helps.
