    Is GXR ok to take with Effexor?


    Since the GXR affects drug metabolizing enzymes is it contraindicated with Effexor?

    I don't see why it would be, but then again this is the first I've heard of GXR's abilities on metabolizing enzymes. (Are you sure your not thinking of grape fruit juice or something). Anywho, one of my gym buddies has taken GXR with Zoloft and had no problems

    I don't think I'd recommend it since the Q3/Q4 analogues have the potential to enhance the effects of stimulants and SSRIs like Effexor are strongly contraindicated in conjunction with MAO-Is.

    Well, as I understand it, it is the quercetin (found in GXR) in grape fruit juice that affects the enzymes.

    Are you saying the Q3/Q4 are MAOI's?

    I was more thinking about getting higher blood levels of venlafaxine.

    I'd like Dr.D's opinion as well.

    I have been taking GXR along with Zoloft and had no complications. I haven't taken the two together but I have taken one within an hour of the other and seen no differences.

    AHAAAA, I see what your talking about now. You learn something new everyday on this board. But like I said, one of my friends has taken it with zoloft ( not sure of the dosage or time seperation), and has had no complaints. However, I would always heed the advice of the ones who market the product.

    If you go read the new GXR write-up and scroll to the sections specically on Quercetin and Q3/Q4 and also GXR and stimulant potentiation, it'll become a lot clearer:
