I have been taking effexor for several years. I have gained just a few pounds and I don't know if it was because of the drug. I am now trying to loose some weight and it isn't working where in the past ( before effexor) I have been able to. I am wondering if the drug has slowed my metabolism.
I've recently started taking this med as well. For me I have weight to loose and have continued to loose slowly. I don't know if there's a clear answer, some gain, some loose, so I'm assuming it really depends on the person. Perhaps you could try a natural metabolism booster your doctor or pharmacist could recommend, or having your thyroid tested? Kim.
