Efexor XR and XL

Just a quick question.... does anyone know what the difference is between efexor XR and efexor XL. When I was first put on this drug and taking 75mg the name on the box said efexor XR, but when my dose was increased to 150mg, the title on the packet then said efexor XL.

Does anyone know why this is and is there a difference between the two?

Sorry, Genie, like you I'm clueless on this one. However, I was amused by the silly non-answer that popped into my head: maybe XR=extra regular and, therefore, XL would = Extra Large. LOL Foxbluff

I thought maybe XR could be extended release but I was still baffled by the XL one!

Wink Re: Efexor XR and XL

Hello genie04

I have been taking efexor XL for about 2 weeks now. I was put on 75mg one a day capsules. I was also curious after doing some research and finding out that there was another called efexor XR.

I'm about 80% sure that XR is the latest drug produced by Wyeth, and I'm 100% sure it stands for Extended release.

As for XL, I'm still trying to find out what it stands for, and also what the differences are, between the two.

Will be sure to let you know when I find out.
