Well it's not really similar to PCP at all but it is related chemically to some other illegal drugs.

Effexor (Venlafaxine) is classed as a Phenethylamine Monoamine Reuptake Inhibitor.

A phenethylamine is a compound that is based around a certain structural skeleton (in this case the phenethylamine skeleton) and modified by chemical constituents at appropriate positions in the molecule.

Other drugs that are also classed as Phenethylamines include: mescaline, 2CB, MDMA(ectascy) and many other "designer drugs/research chemicals" currently being used/abused today (for instance 2c-t-7 which has already caused a handful of deaths in the last couple of years).

Effexor is somewhat chemically similar to these "recreational" drugs mentioned above - not to PCP.

A researcher named Alexander Shulgin has done an amazing amount of research into this class of compounds and their pharmacological effects. More information about these sorts of things can be found at and
