Well I have heard that story both ways but most of the people I have talked with are just the opposite. My friend lost 45 lbs on Effexor. I have been on Lexapro, and I gained, but I seem to gain and hold on to the weight.
Each person is different and if you were stress eating and now feel better that may be the cause, or just going off the Effexor may have caused the weight loss.
Others will have some info for you so stay with us and keep on posting.
This is a wonderful group of supportive, caring members.
