The 2017 research, published in the Journal of Clinical Diagnosis Research, compared the effect of Lavandula officinalis and Venlafaxine
in treating these patients with either mild or moderate depression over a six-month period.
Withdrawal rates due to AEs were significantly lower for vortioxetine vs sertraline, venlafaxine
, and bupropion, and numerically lower vs citalopram.
Investigators performed a meta-analysis of all trials (14 RCTs; 2490 patients, total) that used the same standardized symptom severity score (the Children's Depression Rating Scale--Revised [CDRS-R], range 17 to 113 points) to evaluate the following medications: fluoxetine, sertraline, escitalopram, citalopram, paroxetine, venlafaxine
, and mirtazapine.
Stop velafaxine, initiate quetiapine, 50 mg/d, and titrate to 150 mg/d 35% Stop venlafaxine
, initiate lithium, 1,800 mg/d 24% Stop venlafaxine
, initiate olanzapine, 6 mg/d, and fluoxetine, 50 mg/d 11% Reduce venlafaxine
dosage to 75 mg/d 30% Note: Table made from pie chart.
He continued to take venlafaxine
and quetiapine; his withdrawal symptoms were relieved by diazepam.
He presented to the mental health outpatient psychiatry clinic complaining of depression, worsened anxiety, and resumption of panic attacks after he was weaned off from venlafaxine
treatment 2 weeks earlier.
The study compared the before and after depression issues of 133 participants, some of whom took the venlafaxine
and some of who took a placebo.
From spiking experiments, limit of detection (LODs) and limit of quantification (LOQs) for carbamazepine were 10 ng/l and 100 ng/l, for venlafaxine
were 1 [micro]g/l and 1 ng/l, and for fluoxetine were 100 ng/l and 1 [micro]g/l, respectively.
However, by 12 months, adherence had dropped to 28% for venlafaxine
and 22% for fluoxetine.
The second hypothesis was to verify if Paroxetine and Venlafaxine
treatments were equally effective on impulse regulation, eating behavior and on personality characteristics.
The objective of the study was to determine the therapeutic benefit and tolerability of low-dose estradiol and low-dose venlafaxine
in alleviating hot flashes and night sweats.
They were then randomized to 12 weeks of switching to a different SSRI alone; switching to venlafaxine
alone; or switching to either of the drugs plus cognitive-behavioral therapy (CBT).
