VELAXIN (Venlafaxine, Effexor, Lanvexin, Viepax) is an antidepressant used to treat depression. Being a selective serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor, Velaxin increases the amounts of serotonin and norepinephrine in the brain. Serotonin and norepinephrine are two neurotransmitters that have strong effect on mood and many forms of mental or other illness. The action of Velaxin maintains the optimal balance of these chemicals in the brain, thus regulating mental health.USES

Velaxin has an active substance venlafaxine with the chemical structure that should not be attributed to any known class of antidepressants (tricyclic, tetracyclic, or other). It has two active enantiomeric racemic forms. Antidepressant effect is achieved by increasing neurotransmitter activity in the central nervous system. Venlafaxine and its main metabolite O-desmethyl-venlafaxine (EFA) are potent inhibitors of the reuptake of serotonin and norepinephrine and weakly inhibit reuptake of dopamine neurons. Venlafaxine and EFA equally act upon the reuptake of neurotransmitters. Venlafaxine and EFA reduce beta-adrenergic responses. Venlafaxine has no affinity to the m- and n-cholinergic receptors, the alpha 1-adrenoreceptor and histamine H 1-receptors of the brain. It does not inhibit MAO activity. Venlafaxine has no affinity for the opioid, benzodiazepine, NMDA-receptors. Further read: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Venlafaxine
