Contain the active ingredient : Venlafaxine hydrochloride is a type of antidepressant known as a serotonin and noradrenaline reuptake inhibitor (SNRI). It works by enhancing the activity of the neurotransmitters serotonin and noradrenaline in the brain.
Neurotransmitters are natural body chemicals that act as chemical messengers between the nerve cells. Serotonin and noradrenaline are neurotransmitters known to be involved in regulating emotions, mood and behaviour, among other things. In depression and anxiety disorders less serotonin and noradrenaline than normal is released from nerve cells in the brain.
Venlafaxine works by stopping the serotonin and noradrenaline that has been released from being reabsorbed back into the nerve cells in the brain. This helps to prolong their effects and over time this helps to lighten mood and relieve depression. Antidepressants like venlafaxine have also been found to be effective in relieving symptoms of anxiety, such as panic and fear.
Venlafaxine won't change your personality or make you feel instantly happy and relaxed. It works over time to correct the chemical changes in your brain that have made you become depressed or anxious, and gets you back to feeling like your old self.
