Discussions that mention effexor

Alternative Medicine board

I need you advice. I am about to start taking Calmplex 2000, which contains aventa sativa, passiflora, valeriana, humulus lup, chamomilla, coffea crudum and ignatia. I take 225 mg of Effexor XR each day. Will these two combinations make me sick? Last time I took a supplement with St. John's Wort in it, it gave me a horrific headache and I was sick for 2 days. I really don't want to go through that again. I really would like to get off of the Effexor, but I understand that the withdrawals of backing off of it are also horrific. And I hate pain!!! Can you help me.

God Bless!
