Desvenlafaxine, is medication belonging to a group of medications called as SNRI (Selective Serotonin and Norepinephrine Reuptake inhibitors), and it is used to treat various conditions like panic disorder, anxiety, depression, and sometimes for pain management too.

Overall it is a reasonably well tolerated medications however as with any other allopathic medication it also can cause some side effects, and the following are some of the commonest side effects associated with desvenlafaxine;

Increased or excessive sweating

Dizziness

Drowsiness

Dry mouth

Constipation

Sleep problems (insomnia)

Loss of appetite

Tightness in your jaw

Nausea

Weight loss

Blurred vision

Nervousness

Decreased sex drive

Impotence

Difficulty having an orgasm etc

Please see most often this medication is very well tolerated, and even if side effects may occur but they do get better as you continue using this med and as your body gets used to this medication more and more, so if any side effects occur not to get scared, most of the times such side effects will get better. Also most of the side effects are experienced when it is taken in larger doses, relatively smaller doses or with the recommended doses of 50 to 100 mg per day this medication is not expected to cause any major or serious or bothersome side effects.

To your other question of any interactions with codeine, there are no major or serious drug interactions known to occur when it is taken with codeine at the standard recommended doses. The standard recommended dose for desvenlafaxine is about 50 mg, rarely one may go up to about 100 mg per day, as long as the dose is kept up to about 100 mg per day this medication is not expected to cause any major or serious drug interactions with codeine - so both desvenlafaxime and codeine can be used together safely.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if you want to discuss this further.

Assuring you the best services!

Best Regards!
