Usually not. The drug though will react differently with different people. What is does is raise your energy level"usually" not always. Some people have a hard time sleeping while taking the drug.

I am on another site re depression and Effexor and in nearly every case, including mine, people gain weight on EffexorXR, in fact on all types of Effexor.

Hello PATTYCAKE1956. Papasam is correct.The vast majority of people taking Effexor lose the weight. In clinical trials, up to 17% of users reported a loss of appetite. Close to 1% of users reported weight gain. Regards pledge
