I will turn 56 years old at the end of this month. I went through menopause when I had my hysterectomy 18 years ago. I quit my job last June. Since then I have gained approx 15 pounds. I also decreased the amount of Effexor I was taking form 150 to 75 and now 37.5mg. I now work out about 3 times a week, cardio and weight training. Do any of you think that the Slim Quick I just purchased will help me lose this weight, soon?
Also, does my reduction of Effexor have anything to do with my weight gain? I
I am on Effexor and thought that it was affecting my ability to lose weight. You seem to think the opposite that is reducing the Effexor is making you gain weight. I wonder what affect if any Effexor has. It may depend on the individual. As a side note did you have any withdrawal symptoms? I may reduce my dosage later this year.
I wanted to respond to your posts. I took Effexor for 11 years and was just recently able to get off of it. My experience is different for most but familiar with Golah56. I have gained about 10 pounds in just 3 weeks after stopping the medication. It's a nightmare, I feel like I can't control it no matter what I do. I'm really struggling with it so if anyone gets answers, please let me know. Withdrawl (withdrawal) from this drug is a true nightmare, I can't even begin to list my side effects. Just be very careful and do not do it without being under the supervision of a doctor.
