What is Venlafaxine ER?
Venlafaxine ER is a prescription antidepressant medication used to treat major depressive disorder, social anxiety disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, and panic disorder.
Depression is a common mental health condition caused by physiological, biological, and social factors that is characterized by a persistently depressed attitude and a loss of interest in daily activities and hobbies. The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that some 7% of the U.S. population experiences a depressive episode each year.
Luckily, antidepressant medications like venlafaxine have proven effective in managing and treating symptoms of depression, anxiety, and other mental health disorders.
