I have gained 15 lbs. It is either the E. or Tamoxifen that I also began following treatment. I'm not eating any different and have cut down with no weight loss. I have never been obese or above my BMI. I am tired from both meds so although I am doing all I need to do that includes a lot of activity and strength... I am not exercising as much.
All I got from Venlafaxine was a sudden weight gain of 25 lbs. and I have always been 105 lbs. you can't believe my shock and the immediate call to my dr that took me off of this and now I'm on Wellbutrin. It's slow but I've lost six lbs. I am a vegetarian and I was stunned. I'm walking and doing charity runs and it is still hard but I feel so much better, talk to your dr. There are meds for your condition and won't cause weight gain. I think you need to change meds cause I noticed I was tired all the time too. Good luck and feel better.
