What should I do if I miss a dose of Effexor?

If you miss a dose of Effexor (venlafaxine), take it as soon as you remember. If it's almost time for the next dose, however, just skip the missed dose and continue with your regular schedule. Do not "double up" your dose. If you're taking the extended-release version (Effexor XR), don't take more than one dose in a day.
