Question: Does Effexor have amphetamine in it? Ann

Answer: Dear Ann,

Effexor XR does not contain amphetamines. It contains venlafaxine hydrochloride, an antidepressant. Inactive ingredients consist of cellulose, ethylcellulose, gelatin, hypromellose, iron oxide, and titanium dioxide.

Amphetamines are usually found in an hydrochloride or sulfate salt form, but this is not to be confused with Effexor having amphetamines. Amphetamines' formula is C9 H13 N where venlafaxine formula is C17 H27 NO2.
