    Risperidone and/or Effexor causing hives?

    I have been on Resperidone and Effexor now for about 9 months. Starting Dunday I began developing hives First red spots on my hands then my whole hand has turned red and itchy, also burns like a sunburn. I am now begining to notice dime sized red circles in other places. Forearm, neck, legs. I have had no change in meds or any change in diet. I am wondering what could be the cause. Ugh, never had a rash before.

    He didn't state that there were any negative interactions between the two. He has other clients on the same combo and said he has had little complaints. The rash is beginning to fade at this point and is no longer itchy. That was strange though. Never had a rash that I remember. Chickenpox when I was 6 but that's it
