Hi, Earwig! Maybe the earwigs are causing your headches? LOL! I know that's an old wive's tale.
Seriously, as far as OTCs, acetominophen (Tylenol) would be safest for you. Both aspirin and ibuprofen can interact with Effexor to cause bleeding problems.
Occasional use would probbly be alright, but try the Tylenol first.
