Thanks for your query.Effexor XR
. You have not mentioned whether you changed over to Venlafaxine or some other alternative, 3 months back.
if you had switched over from Effexor XR to Venlafafine, well..both are same drugs.
Increased dry cough
is an adverse effect of Venlafaxime in some patients. It can also be due to allergic cough
(due to unknown food or particles in the atmosphere), despite allergy tests
You may consult your doctor, who will switch over to an alternative drug. If dry cough doesn't disappear even after switching over to the alternative drug, you will need to undergo allergy test once again.
Have a good health.
