VENLAFAXINE

2 posts in this topic

Is there a furore since December last year about Venlafaxine's association with higher risk of suicide ? :-/

I know of a meta-analysis which concluded that odds ratio of SSRIs increasing risk of non-fatal suicide attempts was 2.28 (CI significant) as compared to placebo                                                                       (BMJ 19th Feb05).

out of curiosity, when does venlafaxine come off patent? or has it already? Call me cynical, but with that plus the new nice guidelines it seems everyone's got it in for venlafaxine at the moment. Which is a shame cos it works.
