Hi Della. When my doctor changed my medication from Zoloft to Effexor, I lost 20 pounds. Unfortunately that was what I gained from the Zoloft over the course of about 4 years, that along with some Psychotic medications I was taking for Major Depressive Disorder. However I have kept the weight off despite having "hot flashes" as well. I don't know if this has helped any but I wanted to share my input. I hope you're doing okay with it.
Hi, I'm on day 4, my hot flashes are so much better already, I to am scared of weight gain, so far mild loss of appetite. I'm working with a coach at gym to monitor my food macros and I report daily, determined not to gain weight. I have a little brain fuzziness, hoping this will clear in the next few days.
