> I just came off of effexor in March having started in November,1998. In that short time, I regained 23 of the 26 pounds it had taken me 16 months prior to lose(and I stil had thirty more to go). Im on celexa now and it doesn't look any better (up two more pounds) nor is my mood improved. Good luck. Everybody's differenet.

thanks for replying... i hope it all works out for you.
i've only been on effexor for about 5 months. i'm giving it another couple of weeks and then will probably taper off. as it needs to be done slowly anyway, i'm hoping that i may start losing the weight at a lower dose BUT i am still afraid of the eventual weight gain that so many have written about. i actually only even tried it because i had been assured that weight gain would be an unlikely side effect... :(

and it's a shame too, as the effexor really seems to help

but for me fat and happy is a contradiction in terms... polar opposites in my life

like you said, everyone's different... i don't expect everyone to feel as i do - but i don't think i should be expected to feel like anyone else either

i said it before, we all deserve to feel better... but without having to compromise ourselves in the process... if we stop tolerating what is intolerable, maybe they'd come up with something that worked... or am i only dreaming...

my dreams are sometimes all i have...
