Detailed Answer:
Hello, and thanks for your question.

Unfortunately no one can prescribe an antidepressant medication like venlafaxine without examining you in-person. What you need to do is apply for Medicaid, and once your application is approved, call Medicaid for a list of providers who accept that insurance in your area. This is the only way to obtain this medication.
