This is an unfortunate example of misinformation. The chart was established by the Los Angeles police department in the early 1970s to justify their DWI (driving while intoxicated) program. They are far from being a definitive source of pharmacological information, despite their claiming support by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). It really is an amusing website as it is an example of fabricating "facts" and claiming expertise to fit an agenda - convictions.

Emmme_V2,
The update of 2009 is for that chart. That chart is from Washington State, not Los Angeles.
If you believe that the chart that I cited in the link is from Los Angeles, where is there evidence to you for that so that you accept that as fact?
Friends, what we have here is that if the Washington chart came from the Los Angeles chart from the early 1970s, then the update could be from Washington since it was updated after the 1970s. Effexor was not marketed in the US in the early 1970s. Effexor in that chart is listed as a CNS depressant, and also look in drugs.com under interactions with Trileptal.
But it is much more than that here. For here one may not know that taking two CNS depressants could kill the one taking them together. And if people are led to doubt the reliability of the Washington chart, where is the evidence that the chart is not accurate? The update could be by the Washington dept, not Los Angeles.
Lou
