Depends. Effexor XR can actually cause changes in appetite - so if you find yourself eating more you would be more likely to gain weight. Some people find they lose their appetite so they will be the lucky ones who lose the extra pounds. It does look like weight loss is more common than weight gain though - good luck.

I have read what drugs.com says but have seen a lot of forums where people are gaining weight. Figured I would get a poll going here. Anyone? :)
