Venlaflaxine for ADHD


Venlaflaxine for ADHD

Brand names of venlaflaxin include: Trevilor (D), Efexor (CH), Efectin (A)

Venaflaxin came on the market in 1993 and is approved only for adults (18 years and older).1

Venlaflaxine acts primarily at the serotonin level, secondarily at the norepinephrine level as a reuptake inhibitor (SSNRI = selective serotonin-norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor), and even less so at the dopamine level.1

Venlaflaxine has been tested in ADHD in only a few studies with a small number of subjects. Improvement in ADHD symptoms was very modest, while side effects were substantial.2
We therefore advise against the use of venlaflaxine for ADHD.

Regarding the entire group of serotonin reuptake inhibitors, there are concerns about their use in ADHD.
See Notes on serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) in ADHD In the article Medications for ADHD - Overview.
