I'm transferring this to General Health and Nutrition-- one of the mods over there is more likely to be able to address your query.

I don't really see why any allergy meds should interact negatively with your Effexor. Your best bet is to discuss this with the pharmacist when you go to buy it.
I do want to point out though, that a recent study showed that there may be more negative effects on a pregnancy/fetus/newborn of a mother on anti depressants than originally thought. If you have not discussed the risks/benefits of anti depressants through pregnancy with your doctor yet, you need to do so now. (And i only bring this up after reading your last post about morning sickness ... If i've misunderstood, forgive me!)
Oh no I'm not pregnant I was just wondering haha. The only reason I asked was cuz I was curious, and the reason I asked the question about Effexor was cuz I had taken Benadryl before and I was shaking really bad and really dizzy. I asked the pharmacist about it and she said that Benadryl goes to the brain and can affect some meds that you are on. So she suggested Claritin, cuz it doesn't go to the brain, I just found that out about 2 hours ago.
Thanks for the reply
