What is Effexor XR?
As the generic name for Effexor XR, Venlafaxine, used to treat the major depressive disorder (MDD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder (SAD), and panic disorder (PD). It may help improve one’s mood and energy level. It could help decrease anxiety, fear, unwanted thoughts, and episodes of panic attacks. Thus, restoring interest in daily life.
