What is Effexor?

Effexor, a drug initially introduced in 1993, is classified as a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SSNRI) and is used for the treatment of depression, anxiety, mood, and panic disorders. Unfortunately, it has not only been known to exacerbate some conditions, but has also been discovered to play a role in suicide among teenagers.

In severe cases, Effexor can subsequently cause fatal allergic reactions known as Stevens Johnson Syndrome (SJS) as well as Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis (TEN). Stevens Johnson Syndrome is a condition of the skin and mucous membranes, which includes painful rashes and blisters spreading throughout the superficial layer of the skin, causing the skin to die and shed. Furthermore, Toxic Epidermal Necrolysis is an even more severe skin condition affecting over 30% of the top layer of the skin, whereas SJS involves less than 10%. Overall, TEN causes death in about 35% of individuals who are afflicted by it. In addition, it has been associated with causing birth defects.

Some additional side effects include but are not limited to:

  • Severe headache
  • Insomnia
  • Blurred or changes in vision
  • Seizures
  • Hallucinations
  • Coma
