> Me too, when I initially started taking it I became indifferent to food and craved coffee. I've been on it now for five months and it's not the indiffernce isn't as bad, I actually had a sensation of hunger today. Like Amy I too have had a difficult time maintaining my weight so I've tried to make a conscious effort to eat. Now though I don't think I'm losing any weight and I've bablanced back to my normal size.
No need to worry girlfriends I too lost about 12 pounds at the beginning of taking effexor but eventually you get your appetite back w/ a vengence!! I gained the 12 back later and added 40 pounds to that. My sister in law who weighed 110 and lost 5 pounds at the beginning of taking it now weighs about 175 and she could'nt put on weight if she tried before. Give it a few months and you will be craving carbos just like the rest of us.
