I have been taking Effexor XR (75mg) since January. Suddenly the first week of August I have been breaking out in hives... progressively getting worse. First on my arms, then torso, then upper thigh area, then back of thigh... it travels and appears in a new spot each time. Today I have them almost everywhere on my body. Benedryl helps relieve the itching and the hives reduce however once the medicine wears off HELLO HIVES!. My doctor also gave me Zyrtec (sp?) for itching and that helped also, but I do not want to be forever taking this additional medicine.
I have an appointment with an allergist tomorrow. Same as you stated, I have not changed anything notable, have never had allergies before, and this is driving me nutty.
