Venlafaxine is commonly prescribed for the treatment of depression. In clinical studies, people who took the drug had more improvement in their depression symptoms than people who did not take the antidepressant.

Take care, best wishes!

While venlafaxine is prescribed primarily for depression, some people find it does help for neuropathy (nerve pain).

Venlaxafine is the generic name for the SNRI (serum norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor) antidepressant, Effexor.

In addition to this being an antidepressant, the effects of feeling an improved sense of mood, can help with the way pain is perceived.
