Venlift 150 MG Description

Venlift Od Cap contains venlafaxine hydrochloride as its main ingredient. It belongs to a group of medicines known as antidepressants. Venlift Od Cap is used to treat psychiatric disorders associated

with social/general anxiety, depression, and panic disorders. It might sometimes also be used along with other medications to treat symptoms of menopause. Anxiety-related disorders exhibit symptoms like feelings of worry, fear, and indecisiveness. One may feel very anxious or face difficulty while performing in front of a crowd. Venlafaxine hydrochloride acts by regulating levels of serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain and generates feelings of calmness, relaxation and happiness, thus elevating the mood, behaviour and social outcome of the patient in everyday life. Venlift Od Cap comes as orally dissolving capsules to be taken with or without food. You can follow it up with a glass of water. It can cause side effects like stomach pain, gas, nausea, uncontrolled muscle movements, dry mouth, increased blood pressure and sleep problems. Venlift Od Cap can be prescribed to patients of all ages. Venlift Od Cap can increase the risk of depressive thoughts, so patients must be monitored regularly. It is not advised to stop taking Venlift Od Cap abruptly as it may cause withdrawal symptoms like diarrhoea, constipation, nausea or sleep problems.
