> Are there any interaction problems between Effexor and OTC sleep aids? I just wonder because my pdoc never suggested trying those, just immediately prescribed Xanax (well, not immediately, it's a long story, but OTC stuff has never been suggested to me).

As far as i can tell after a brief over view of the interactions i dont see anything about the OTC stuff. Why he went for the xanax...maybe he thought you were getting wound up by the NE reuptake kicking in with the effexor. Which also explains the insomnia, he was just being a nice guy.

If you're concerned about interactions just ask a pharmacist but i seriously doubt your doctor is going to continue to give you xanax after a week or two which isnt long enough to get strung out as far as im concerned, people blow it out of proportion on here sometimes.
