Welcome to Healing Well. From what I know re Effexor is it may cause weight loss but I have never been on it.
Perhaps your mood is changing and your appetite is improving.
I am sure you will learn a lot from members that actually use the drug.
Again a Warm welcome.
Hi Jmefh, I have been on Effexor XR for almost 2 yrs and have not gained weight from it. Actually, I have lost a few pounds while on it.
It is always important to remember that everyone one of us is different (different body chemicals) and will react to these medications in different ways. Every antidepressant has the potential to either make a person gain or lose weight while taking it (reading the insert guide and patient trials shows this)...it all depends on the person and dosage.
