IMPORTANT THINGS YOU SHOULD KNOW ABOUT
EFEXOR XL
Please read all of this leaflet before you start to take
your medicine as it contains important information
about Efexor XL
• Efexor XL is used to treat depression, severe and
persistent anxiety known as generalised anxiety
disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder (also
known as social phobia) and panic disorder
(panic attacks)
• Efexor XL is not for use in children and adolescents
– see in section 2 ‘Children and adolescents’
If you have any concerns about how you feel, or
about this medication, it is important that you talk to
your doctor – even if you feel anxious or worried
about doing so. 
You may find it helpful to tell a friend or relative that you
are depressed or suffering from an anxiety disorder, and
that you have been prescribed this medication; it might
be useful to show them this leaflet.
• Efexor XL may not start to work immediately.
Some people taking antidepressants may feel worse
before feeling better. Your doctor may ask to see you
again a couple of weeks after you start treatment
and then regularly until you start to feel well again.
Tell your doctor if you do not start to feel better.
• Some people who are depressed may think of
harming or killing themself. If this happens you
should see your doctor or go to a hospital straight
away – see in section 2 ‘Thoughts of suicide and
worsening of your depression or anxiety disorder’
• If you take too many capsules it is important to
seek immediate medical attention, even if you feel
well, because of the risk of serious side effects
• Do not stop taking Efexor XL or change your
dose without the advice of your doctor even if
you feel better. If you stop taking Efexor XL abruptly
you may get withdrawal reactions – see in
section 3 ‘If you stop taking Efexor XL’
• If you have heart problems such as fast or
irregular heart rate or high blood pressure you
should talk to your doctor before taking Efexor
XL – see in section 2 ‘Before you take Efexor XL’
• Taking certain other medicines with Efexor XL
may cause problems. You should tell your doctor
if you are taking any other medicines – see in
section 2 ‘What you need to know before you take
Efexor XL’
• See your doctor without delay if you feel restless
and feel like you can’t keep still, feel ‘high’ or very
over-excited, have jerky muscle movements which
you can’t control. See section 4 – ‘Possible side
effects’ for other important information
If you are pregnant, or intend to become pregnant, or
breast-feeding, you should talk to your doctor – see in
section 2 ‘Pregnancy and breast-feeding’
More information on all of these points is provided in
the rest of this leaflet.
Read all of this leaflet carefully before you start
taking this medicine because it contains important
information for you.
• Keep this leaflet. You may need to read it again.
• If you have any further questions, ask your doctor or
pharmacist.
• This medicine has been prescribed for you only. Do
not pass it on to others. It may harm them, even if their
signs of illness are the same as yours.
• If you get any side effects, talk to your doctor or
pharmacist. This includes any possible side effects not
listed in this leaflet. See section 4.

6. Contents of the pack and other information
1. What Efexor XL is and what it is used for
Efexor XL contains the active substance venlafaxine.
Efexor XL is an antidepressant that belongs to a group
of medicines called serotonin and norepinephrine
reuptake inhibitors (SNRIs). This group of medicines is
used to treat depression and other conditions such as
anxiety disorders. It is thought that people who are
depressed and/or anxious have lower levels of serotonin
and noradrenaline in the brain. It is not fully understood
how antidepressants work, but they may help by increasing
the levels of serotonin and noradrenaline in the brain.
Efexor XL is a treatment for adults with depression. It is
also a treatment for adults with the following anxiety
disorders: generalised anxiety disorder, social anxiety
disorder (fear or avoidance of social situations) and panic
disorder (panic attacks). Treating depression or anxiety
disorders properly is important to help you get better. If
it is not treated, your condition may not go away and
may become more serious and more difficult to treat.
2. What you need to know before you take Efexor XL
Do not take Efexor XL
• If you are allergic to venlafaxine or any of the other
ingredients of this medicine (listed in section 6).
• If you are also taking, or have taken within the last 14 days,
any medicines known as irreversible monoamine oxidase
inhibitors (MAOIs), used to treat depression or Parkinson’s
disease. Taking an irreversible MAOI together with Efexor
XL, can cause serious or even life-threatening side effects.
Also, you must wait at least 7 days after you stop taking
Efexor XL before you take any MAOI (see also the section
entitled “Other medicines and Efexor XL” and the
information in that section about ‘Serotonin Syndrome’).
Warnings and precautions
Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Efexor
XL:
• If you use other medicines that taken together with
Efexor XL could increase the risk of developing
serotonin syndrome (see the section “Other medicines
and Efexor XL”).
• If you have eye problems, such as certain kinds of
glaucoma (increased pressure in the eye).
• If you have a history of high blood pressure.
• If you have a history of heart problems.
• If you have been told you have an abnormal heart
rhythm.
• If you have a history of fits (seizures).
• If you have a history of low sodium levels in your blood
(hyponatraemia).
• If you have a tendency to develop bruises or a
tendency to bleed easily (history of bleeding disorders),
or if you are taking other medicines that may increase
the risk of bleeding e.g., warfarin (used to prevent
blood clots).
• If you have a history of, or if someone in your family
has had, mania or bipolar disorder (feeling over-excited
or euphoric).
• If you have a history of aggressive behaviour.
Efexor XL may cause a sensation of restlessness or an
inability to sit or stand still during the first few weeks of
treatment. You should tell your doctor if this happens to
you.
Thoughts of suicide and worsening of your depression
or anxiety disorder
If you are depressed and/or have anxiety disorders, you
can sometimes have thoughts of harming or killing
yourself. These may be increased when you first start
taking antidepressants, since these medicines all take
time to work, usually about two weeks, but sometimes
longer.
You may be more likely to think like this:
• If you have previously had thoughts about killing
yourself or harming yourself.
• If you are a young adult. Information from clinical trials
has shown an increased risk of suicidal behaviour in
young adults (less than 25 years old) with psychiatric
conditions who were treated with an antidepressant.
If you have thoughts of harming or killing yourself at any
time, contact your doctor or go to a hospital straight away.
You may find it helpful to tell a relative or close friend
that you are depressed or have an anxiety disorder, and
ask them to read this leaflet. You might ask them to tell
you if they think your depression or anxiety is getting
worse, or if they are worried about changes in your
behaviour.
Dry mouth
Dry mouth is reported in 10% of patients treated with
venlafaxine. This may increase the risk of tooth decay
(caries). Therefore, you should take special care in your
dental hygiene.

Diabetes
Your blood glucose levels may be altered due to Efexor
XL. Therefore, the dosage of your diabetes medicines
may need to be adjusted.
Children and adolescents
Efexor XL should normally not be used for children and
adolescents under 18 years. Also, you should know that
patients under 18 have an increased risk of side effects,
such as suicide attempt, suicidal thoughts and hostility
(predominantly aggression, oppositional behaviour and
anger) when they take this class of medicines. Despite
this, your doctor may prescribe this medicine for patients
under 18 because he/she decides that this is in their best
interests. If your doctor has prescribed this medicine for
a patient under 18, and you want to discuss this, please
go back to your doctor. You should inform your doctor if
any of the symptoms listed above develop or worsen
when patients under 18 are taking Efexor XL. Also, the
long-term safety effects concerning growth, maturation
and cognitive and behavioural development of this medicine
in this age group has not yet been demonstrated.
Other medicines and Efexor XL
Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking, have
recently taken or might take any other medicines.
Your doctor should decide whether you can take Efexor
XL with other medicines.
Do not start or stop taking any medicines, including
those bought without a prescription, natural and herbal
remedies, before checking with your doctor or pharmacist.
• Monoamine oxidase inhibitors which are used to treat
depression or Parkinson’s disease must not be taken
with Efexor XL. Tell your doctor if you have taken
these medicines within the last 14 days. (MAOIs: see
the section “What you need to know before you take
Efexor XL”).
• Serotonin syndrome:
A potentially life-threatening condition or Neuroleptic
Malignant Syndrome (NMS)-like reactions (see the
section “Possible Side Effects”) may occur with
venlafaxine treatment, particularly when taken with
other medicines.
Examples of these medicines include:
° Triptans (used for migraine)
° Other medicines to treat depression, for instance
SNRIs, SSRIs, tricyclics, or medicines containing
lithium
° Medicines containing linezolid, an antibiotic (used to
treat infections)
° Medicines containing moclobemide, a MAOI (used to
treat depression)
° Medicines containing sibutramine (used for weight
loss)
° Medicines containing tramadol, fentanyl, tapentadol,
pethidine, or pentazocine (used to treat severe pain)
° Medicines containing dextromethorphan (used to
treat coughing)
° Medicines containing methadone (used to treat
opioid drug addiction or severe pain)
° Medicines containing methylene blue (used to treat
high levels of methaemoglobin in the blood)
° Products containing St. John’s Wort (also called
Hypericum perforatum, a natural or herbal remedy
used to treat mild depression)
° Products containing tryptophan (used for problems
such as sleep and depression)
° Antipsychotics (used to treat a disease with
symptoms such as hearing, seeing or sensing things
which are not there, mistaken beliefs, unusual
suspiciousness, unclear reasoning and becoming
withdrawn)
Signs and symptoms of serotonin syndrome may include
a combination of the following:
restlessness, hallucinations, loss of coordination, fast
heart beat, increased body temperature, fast changes in
blood pressure, overactive reflexes, diarrhoea, coma,
nausea, vomiting.
In its most severe form, serotonin syndrome can
resemble Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS). Signs
and symptoms of NMS may include a combination of
fever, fast heart beat, sweating, severe muscle stiffness,
confusion, increased muscle enzymes (determined by a
blood test).
Tell your doctor immediately, or go to the casualty
department at your nearest hospital if you think
serotonin syndrome is happening to you.
You must tell your doctor if you are taking medicines
that can affect your heart rhythm.
Examples of these medicines include:
• Antiarrhythmics such as quinidine, amiodarone, sotalol
or dofetilide (used to treat abnormal heart rhythm)
• Antipsychotics such as thioridazine (See also Serotonin
syndrome above)
• Antibiotics such as erythromycin or moxifloxacin (used
to treat bacterial infections)
• Antihistamines (used to treat allergy)
The following medicines may also interact with Efexor XL
and should be used with caution. It is especially
important to mention to your doctor or pharmacist if you
are taking medicines containing:
• Ketoconazole (an antifungal medicine)
• Haloperidol or risperidone (to treat psychiatric
conditions)
• Metoprolol (a beta blocker to treat high blood pressure
and heart problems)
Efexor XL with food, drink and alcohol
Efexor XL should be taken with food (see section 3 “How
to take Efexor XL”).
You should avoid alcohol while you are taking Efexor XL.
Pregnancy and breast-feeding
If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be
pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor
or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine.
You should use Efexor XL only after discussing the
potential benefits and the potential risks to your unborn
child with your doctor.
Make sure your midwife and/or doctor knows you are on
Efexor XL. When taken during pregnancy, similar drugs
(SSRIs) may increase the risk of a serious condition in
babies, called persistent pulmonary hypertension of the
newborn (PPHN), making the baby breathe faster and
appear bluish. These symptoms usually begin during the
first 24 hours after the baby is born. If this happens to
your baby you should contact your midwife and/or
doctor immediately.
If you are taking this medicine during pregnancy, in
addition to having trouble breathing, another symptom
your baby might have when it is born is not feeding
properly. If your baby has these symptoms when it is
born and you are concerned, contact your doctor and/or
midwife who will be able to advise you.
Efexor XL passes into breast milk. There is a risk of an
effect on the baby. Therefore, you should discuss the
matter with your doctor, and he/she will decide whether
you should stop breast-feeding or stop the therapy with
this medicine.
Driving and using machines
Do not drive or use any tools or machines until you know
how this medicine affects you.
3. How to take Efexor XL
Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has
told you. You should check with your doctor or pharmacist
if you are not sure.
The usual recommended starting dose for treatment of
depression, generalised anxiety disorder and social
anxiety disorder is 75 mg per day. The dose can be
raised by your doctor gradually, and if needed, even up
to a maximum dose of 375 mg daily for depression. If
you are being treated for panic disorder, your doctor will
start with a lower dose (37.5 mg) and then increase the
dose gradually. The maximum dose for generalised
anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder and panic
disorder is 225 mg/day.
Take Efexor XL at approximately the same time each
day, either in the morning or in the evening. Capsules
must be swallowed whole with fluid and not opened,
crushed, chewed or dissolved.
Efexor XL should be taken with food.
If you have liver or kidney problems, talk to your doctor,
since your dose of this medicine may need to be
different.
Do not stop taking this medicine without talking to your
doctor (see the section “If you stop taking Efexor XL”).
If you take more Efexor XL than you should
Call your doctor or pharmacist immediately if you take
more of this medicine than the amount prescribed by
your doctor.
The symptoms of a possible overdose may include a
rapid heart beat, changes in level of alertness (ranging
from sleepiness to coma), blurred vision, seizures or fits,
and vomiting.

If you forget to take Efexor XL
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as you remember.
However, if it is time for your next dose, skip the missed
dose and take only a single dose as usual. Do not take a
double dose to make up for a forgotten dose. Do not
take more than the daily amount of Efexor XL that has
been prescribed for you in one day.
If you stop taking Efexor XL
Do not stop taking your treatment or reduce the dose
without the advice of your doctor even if you feel better.
If your doctor thinks that you no longer need Efexor XL,
he/she may ask you to reduce your dose slowly before
stopping treatment altogether. Side effects are known to
occur when people stop using this medicine, especially
when it is stopped suddenly or the dose is reduced too
quickly. Some patients may experience symptoms such
as tiredness, dizziness, light-headedness, headache,
sleeplessness, nightmares, dry mouth, loss of appetite,
nausea, diarrhoea, nervousness, agitation, confusion, ringing
in the ears, tingling or rarely electric shock sensations,
weakness, sweating, seizures, or flu-like symptoms.
Your doctor will advise you on how you should gradually
discontinue Efexor XL treatment. If you experience any
of these or other symptoms that are troublesome, ask
your doctor for further advice.
If you have any further questions on the use of this
medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
4. Possible side effects
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects,
although not everybody gets them.
If any of the following happen, do not take more Efexor
XL. Tell your doctor immediately, or go to the
casualty department at your nearest hospital:
Uncommon (may affect up to 1 in 100 people)
• Swelling of the face, mouth, tongue, throat, hands, or
feet, and/or a raised itchy rash (hives), trouble
swallowing or breathing
Rare (may affect up to 1 in 1,000 people)
• Chest tightness, wheezing, trouble swallowing or
breathing
• Severe skin rash, itching or hives (elevated patches of
red or pale skin that often itch)
• Signs and symptoms of serotonin syndrome which
may include restlessness, hallucinations, loss of
coordination, fast heart beat, increased body temperature,
fast changes in blood pressure, overactive reflexes,
diarrhoea, coma, nausea, vomiting.
In its most severe form, serotonin syndrome can
resemble Neuroleptic Malignant Syndrome (NMS).
Signs and symptoms of NMS may include a combination
of fever, fast heart beat, sweating, severe muscle
stiffness, confusion, increased muscle enzymes
(determined by a blood test).
• Signs of infection, such as high temperature, chills,
shivering, headaches, sweating, flu-like symptoms.
This may be the result of a blood disorder which leads
to an increased risk of infection.
• Severe rash, which may lead to severe blistering and
peeling of the skin.
• Unexplained muscle pain, tenderness or weakness.
This may be a sign of rhabdomyolysis.
Other side effects that you should tell your doctor about
include (The frequency of these side effects are included
in the list “Other side effects that may occur” below):
• Coughing, wheezing and shortness of breath which
may be accompanied by a high temperature
• Black (tarry) stools or blood in stools

Do not be concerned if you see small white balls or
granules in your stools after taking this medicine.
Inside Efexor XL capsules are spheroids (small white
balls) that contain the active ingredient (venlafaxine).
These spheroids are released from the capsule into
your stomach. As they travel through your stomach
and intestines, venlafaxine is slowly released. The
spheroid “shell” does not dissolve and is passed out in
your stools. So, even though you may see spheroids in
your stools, your dose of medicine has been absorbed.

Efexor XL sometimes causes unwanted effects that you
may not be aware of, such as increases in blood

pressure or abnormal heart beat; slight changes in blood
levels of liver enzymes, sodium or cholesterol. More
rarely, Efexor XL may reduce the function of platelets in
your blood, leading to an increased risk of bruising or
bleeding. Therefore, your doctor may wish to do blood
tests occasionally, particularly if you have been taking
Efexor XL for a long time.
