Cam--allergic rash from Effexor-XR?

Posted by Cindy W on July 28, 2000, at 21:47:12

Cam, is it possible for somebody to become sensitized over time to an AD? For the past month, I've been breaking out in a rash on the trunk of my body, especially at night. I discontinued everything except for Effexor-XR 375 mg/day (and started Benadryl which used to stop it but now doesn't even slow the itching or rash down). I've been to an MD, tried anti-parasite and anti-fungal potions, and am breaking out worse every day. Does allergy to Effexor sound like a possibility? If it is possible, do such rashes get worse at certain times of the day (I take it all in the AM, but the rash appears in late afternoon and evening, then disappears again by morning). Any thoughts? I see my pdoc in three days, and am terrified that if I have to discontinue it I'll be like Cliff Robertson in "Charly" (depression and OCD back with a vengeance). Thanks!--Cindy W
