My doctor recently switched me from Effexor XR 75mg/day to Wellbutrin XL 150mg/day due to significant weight gain in less than a month on effexor. He told me Wellbutrin will help with the unhealthy weight gain( I'm only 5'3 and over 150lbs since being on effexor) and that within a month it will have improved my anxiety and depression symptoms and will increase my energy levels and weight loss from the effexor. Can anyone give me feedback from their experiences? Effexor helped my moods but made me hungry 24/7 and it didn't matter if I ate 1000 calories a day and burned as many calories, I jut kept gaining weight. I'm hoping Wellbutrin will have the same impact for my moods but not the feeling hungry and wanting to always be eating. Thanks :)
