I have been on effexor xr for a lot of years, why have I been changed to winfex XL. The effexor agrees with me.
Are you in the UK? I don't know why you were switched, but the medication is the same thing. It is extended release venlafaxine. Compare your new presription insert with one of your old Effexor XR ones and let me know if I am wrong. If I am correct, I am actually really interested in knowing why your doctor made that change... it is weird...
Please do let me know what your doctor says about it... and I hope it works just as well for you (theoretically, it should!).
