Why low does Venlafaxine over other SSRI's

Curious if anyone has been educated on this topic. If doses less than 75mg of Vanlafaxine only target Seretonin than what seems to make it more effective than a standard SSRI for MAV? Only guess is it targets different specific receptors. What do you guys know?

Venlafaxine is an SNRI, not an SSRI (I’ve failed to make that distinction before :sweat_smile: )

Here’s a discussion of the differences I found:

I ‘know’ nothing about it really but have read the threshold where it a;leads to change from being SSRI to SSNR is higher. Some say 120mg, some 250mg. Suggest you check out Dr Hain’s www.dizziness-and-balance.com site. He has a huge section on ‘Venlafaxine’. I may have seen the above there.
