I've been on Effexor for several years and have gained about 35 lbs. I don't like the weight gain, but I know that I can't function without meds. Don't try to go off Effexor without talking to your doctor. Get the doctor to help you if you want to go off this med. But, if it's helping you, then maybe the weight gain isn't so bad. Try to keep things in a healthy perspective.
