Effexor is an antidepressant drug developed by Wyeth, but currently marketed by Pfizer. It is approved for the treatment of Manic Depressive Disorder (MDD), anxiety, and depression. It is currently prescribed to millions of people. It is classed as a Serotonin–norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor (SNRI), which is different from other antidepressants, which are classed as selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs). SNRIs act on both serotonin and norepinephrine.

Effexor, like most other anti-depressants, has many serious adverse effects, some of which are fatal. The FDA required black box warnings about increased suicide risk as a result of taking Effexor. In a variety of studies conducted in Europe, the increase in suicide and attempted suicide was statistically significant, and significantly higher than with SSRIs.

Other serious Effexor side effects include:

  • Discontinuation Syndrome
  • Memory Loss
  • Serotonin Syndrome
  • Dependency
  • Nausea
  • Somnolence
  • Abnormal Ejaculation
  • Asthenia
  • Impotence
  • Blurred Vision
  • Anxiety
  • Chest Pain
  • Vomiting
  • Abnormal Thinking
  • Suicidal Ideation


Another serious side effect that has been noted involves birth defects from pregnant women taking Effexor. These birth defects are often very serious and include:

  • Down’s Syndrome
  • Undescended Testes
  • Septal defects such as cleft lip
  • Clubfoot
  • Hernia
  • Malformations
  • Spine Bifida
  • Blindness
  • Congenital Heart Lesions and Anomalies
