This is from https://www.drugs.com/sfx/effexor-xr-side-effects.html

"... Use of venlafaxine (Effexor) has been associated with small but statistically significant increases in total cholesterol, high- density lipoprotein cholesterol and low- density lipoprotein cholesterol."

You should talk with your doctor - your increased cholesterol could be caused by Effexor.
