Answer to Effexor XR questionI take the two together all the time. If you have a predisposition to gastrointestinal bleeding, mixing them is a bad idea, but so is using Advil at all. It's said there's an increased risk for it, overall, when they're mixed, but the data is sketchy, and it's probably just the fact that both have a risk, not that it's an interaction.
