Hi I take Effexor for severe depression and so far it ha been great! I'm also taking vitamins and need to make sure they won't interfere with my Effexor. Below are the vitamins I take and what I take them for.
1. Daily multi vitamin- to get nutrients
2. Omega 3 fatty acids- I don't eat
much meat so need extra protein.
3. Evening Primrose Oil for cramps and PMS
4.Lysine for herpes
5. Cranberry capsules for bladder and kidney's.


Dr B :

Hello, welcome to Justanswer, I will try to assist you with your medical question, and any medical information you seek

Dr B :

All of the drugs/vitamins you are taking are fine to take with Effexor, and there are no known drug interactions you need to worry about

JACUSTOMER-p2m1k8lx- : Any other vitamin you would suggest for energy or weight loss? I was told by a Pharmacist that Ginseng (sp) for energy would interfere with the Effexor.
Dr B :

The mutlivitamins you are taking should suffice, i wouldn't recommend anything else

JACUSTOMER-p2m1k8lx- : Great thanks for your fast response!
Dr B :
