Are headaches common while taking Triphasil for birth control and Effexor for anxiety or depression?

I don't know what the correlation is between birth control and anxiety/depression medication but I do know that one of the side effects of taking the birth control pill is headaches, especially when you first start taking it. I agree with anonymous above, headaches is a common side effect when first taking the pill. I am on my second pack and my headaches can get pretty bad. As far as the anxiety/depression medication, you might want to ask your doctor but if the doctor prescribed your pills knowing you were on that medication you might be fine because they prescribe the pill that would be right for you based on your medical history. ask your Dr or pharmacist. i take both, and i do get bad headaches sometimes. headaches and migraines are a side effect of Effexor also, along w/ the pill I believe that headaches/migraines occur with Effexor especially if you don't take it close to the same time every day. Being off by just a little bit seemed to cause major headaches and nausea when I was on it. Withdrawal.
