Hi and thanks for the query.

Since you have taken your dose today, you should be fine. Venlafaxine is short acting so it manifests its withdrawal in the first 3 days, however, it is also 92 percent absorbed from the stomach when taken orally and attains its levels in the body again with a single dose.

So, do not overdose it to get any effect.

You should be fine with your grand children.
