As previously stated, SSRI = selective serotonin reuptake inhibitor, a class of antidepressants.
Effexor is similiar in that in blocks the reuptake of serotonin, but is slightly different in that it also blocks the reuptake of norepinephrine (another neurotransmitter that is believed to play a role in depression). How's it working for you?
