... Effexor: weight gain or weight loss? Weight neutral? How many lbs gained or lossed and in what amount of time? Any tips to prevent weight gain? Is the weight change dose related? Thanks for the help.

Weight gain or loss? It varies for different people. some gain, some do not change, and some lose. You won't know until you take it. Don't worry about it. I don't think it makes any difference what dose you are on.
Yes I put on a lot of weight, but I would rather that than be depressed. But I lost it all when I stopped the medication.
As you see other people had no change in their weight. It is up to you. Hope you are doing OK.
