I wondered similar thoughts when I was taking small doses of Effexor every day. The bead size is rather inconsistent, but the number of beads per cap tends to be very close. That leads me to think that there is the same quantity of venlafaxine in *each* bead, but that the process of waxy coating is inconsistent resulting in the differing bead sizes. That would lead one to conclude that small beads release quicker than larger ones. I just grouped an "average" group of the same number, but with various sizes comprising each group every time I took a dose.
