This is a question for the Dr prescribing the Effexor. Interactions vary from one person to the next, what someone online says is okay may not be for you, and the opposite is true. The Dr who knows you best has the right answer for you.

I was always hesitant about it. I was on effexor, but that wasn't the reason. One of the side effects of chantix is depression. Since I spent too much time in my life depressed I wasn't about to risk it. I switched to bupropion and that helped me to quit.
