Hi, Mara, will you please send the citation for the information below or a web link? I wondered about this issue because my allergist won't do skin tests until one is off tricyclics for a month. I asked him about Effexor, but he was unaware that Effexor might suppress skin test results. Sure enough, although I display many seasonal allergic symptoms as well perennial rhinitis and asthma (previously told I was allergic to dust mites, etc), my allergy tests were all essentially negative. I was taking 150 mg qd of Effexor-XR at the time. In light of your information on tricyclic-like metabolites of the bicyclic AD, Effexor, I would like to take the citation to my allergist because I think I should be retested now that I no longer take Effexor.

Many thanks for the information, past and future.

> In addition, the metabolic product of Effexor is similar to tricyclic antidepressents which can be hard on the circulatory system....something to watch out for as long-term clincal studies come out.
> Cheers,
> Mara
