I'm been on it for years and the pounds never come off no matter how much I watch what I eat and exercise. Wondering if it's this medication? Anyone experienced this?
I have been on 225mgs of this medication for about a year now and haven't gained any weight or had issues maintaining my weight. I am currently not trying to loose any either. For me this medication pulled me outta the deepest depression and sent me on my way to getting my life back! Good luck!!
I have been on Effexor since October. I gained 10 pounds and haven't been able to get rid of them. My doctor told me it was the medication and my choices were to stay on the medication (which is working wonders for me) or go off it and lose weight, whichever was more important to me. Since my anxiety nearly destroyed my marriage I chose the meds. Its difficult because it puts me a 30 pounds heavier than I want to be, but I look at my husband and family and know I made the right choice for me.Good luck!
I picked up weight - about 3 kilos. My doc says it is not the meds: its my appetite returning.. So, I am exercising and cutting back on chocolates and junk. All 5 other AD's I tried in the last 9 months totally took my appetite away.
The one that finally works (Effexor) just HAD to wake my appetite up!
All the best..

What happens when you are done losing weight, do you stop the drug? Do the cravings come back? I've?
