Venlafaxine [CAS: 93413-69-5] is a serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake inhibitor and an antidepressant. It treats major depressive disorder (MDD), generalized anxiety disorder (GAD), social anxiety disorder (SAD), and panic disorder.
Venlafaxine: Use and Commercial Availability
Venlafaxine treats major depressive disorder, generalized anxiety disorder, social anxiety disorder, and panic disorder. It is an antidepressant medication that helps improve mood and reduce symptoms such as excessive worry, nervousness, and panic attacks. Venlafaxine is commonly prescribed to individuals experiencing these conditions to alleviate their symptoms and enhance their overall well-being.
Venlafaxine is available under the brand names Effexor and Effexor XR.
Venlafaxine Structure and Mechanism of Action
The chemical name of Venlafaxine is 1-[2-(Dimethylamino)-1-(4-methoxyphenyl)ethyl]cyclohexanol. Its chemical formula is C17H27NO2, and its molecular weight is approximately 277.4 g/mol.
Venlafaxine inhibits neuronal serotonin and norepinephrine reuptake and affects neurotransmitter activity in the central nervous system.
Venlafaxine Impurities and Synthesis
Venlafaxine impurities can arise during synthesis1 due to the storage or use of specific raw materials and intermediates in manufacturing. These impurities encompass related compounds, degradation products, and process impurities. Stringent quality control measures and analytical methods are crucial to ensure the purity and safety of Venlafaxine for patient use.
Daicel provides a comprehensive Certificate of Analysis (CoA) for Venlafaxine impurity standards, such as Des Venlafaxine Impurity-II, Des Venlafaxine-related compound B, O-Desmethyl Venlafaxine, and O-Desmethyl Venlafaxine N-Oxide. The CoA includes detailed characterization data such as 1H NMR, 13C NMR, IR, MASS, and HPLC purity2. Additionally, upon delivery, we give 13C-DEPT. Daicel possesses the technology and expertise to synthesize any unknown Venlafaxine impurity or degradation product. We also offer labeled compounds to quantify the efficacy of generic Venlafaxine. For bioanalytical research and BA/BE studies, Daicel supplies O-Desmethyl Venlafaxine-D4 and Venlafaxine-D4, deuterium-labeled standards of Venlafaxine.
