Hey guys a mate of mine just got prescribed this and being lactose intolerant he'd like to know if there's any lactose in this medication. I did a google for him and didn't really come up with anything. I found one site that doesn't mention lactose at all: http://www.betterhealth.vic.gov.au/bhcv2/bhcmed.nsf/pages/wycefexx/$File/wycefexx.pdf

Does anyone here know for sure? My mate gets easily worried and this is making it hard for him.

there IS lactose in the normal effexor. But will ~200mg of lactose really casue problems if all he has is an intolerance?

Well he's severely intollerant. I don't understand how the XR can have no lactose but the normal Effexor does?

Isn't the XR just a longer lasting version?
