I have been on Prozac for over 20 years for OCD. Dr. has prescribed Venlafaxine for hot flashes. I will take is instead of Prozac now. Is this drug effective like Prozac for OCD? If this is not effective for OCD I will need to go back on Prozac.
sissykittty; Yes if the Prozac was working so well the Venlafaxine; Just remember depending on how your doctor is taking you off the Prozac sometimes you can get some side effects nothing you can't handle the Venlafaxine should help cover them And many times you just might feel worse before you start to feel the effects of the Venlafaxine takes one to two weeks you might feel some side effects, but most of these go away anytime after the week or so.Then it takes up to 6 to 8 weeks to reach the full benefit of the medication.Try and take it about the same time each day helps too.
