I am dealing with it. One of the side effects that it will cause fast heart beat. Can that have something to do with high blood pressure??? I have been on Effexor since 2001 until now. Should I switch over. My weight is 204. No matter of how I do my best to eat right but my weight is still the same

I think so, I've been having the same problems, quick heart rate and increased blood pressure. I'm recently cut back from 150mg to 75mg this past week (with no withdrawal thank goodness), just wanting off all my meds. Have a physical next month and will see if the lower dose helps. I think it's something you should for sure talk to your doctor about. Take care, Kim. On a side note, I cut sugar out of my diet... about 95% and lost a bunch of weight quickly. I don't weigh myself but had to buy pants a size smaller.
