Chest pain, flu, discomfort, emotional instability. Had severe reaction to effexor. Affected the immune system?

I've been on 'effexor since December. I had a severe reaction to it but as my doctor was away, I persevered and three weeks later and his return, I felt much better emotionally. However, i have had constant chest pains/discomfort, a very bad flu and another virus right now. My query is whether I am damaging my once excellent immune system by taking this drug. I am now 55. I am scared.
