I am a cancer patient taking tamoxifen so I am limited in antidepressants to take.
What does your oncologist say about this? I don't know, but since you are already having an allergic reaction to the effexor, it is probably not wise to continue taking it, even with an antihistimine. I, too, am a cancer patient and I was given sertraline and for awhile, I also took Effexor. I'm sure the antidepressants you can take are dependent on the chemo you get. I think this question needs to be answered by your doctor so he can decide if he wants to change your meds, change the dose, or discontinue. Btw, were you given an Epi-pen?
