I have been taking Effexor over a year and half. I gained maybe 5 pounds total. I weened off of it over 3 weeks ago, and have gained 9 pounds! I exercise 4-5 days a week, and actually have kept a food diary to prove that I wasn't crazy, that I in fact am just gaining weight like crazy. I have read some of the posts and it seems that this can be normal, but questions is, when does it stop? The withdrawls and weight gain have been far worse than any depression or anxiety problem I had before I started taking it. Am I ever going to lose weight again?
