I am 28 years old with normal blood pressure. Is it safe to take 12-hour extended release pseudoephedrine HCl for a cold while on Effexor (venlafaxine) XR (225mg)?

In brief: Probably

All things being equal if you BP has been normal you should have no problem. Once in a while people who take Pseudoephedrine complain of palpitations or rapid heart beat and also some times difficulty in falling asleep
