I'm relatively new here and would be so grateful if someone could tell me what to do, if anything.
I have suffered from extreme depression which has just recently been relieved by an increase of Effexor to 300 mg per day. I am now so much better it is incredible. It has also reduced my self injury a lot. I am also on Topamax 100 mg per day, Risperdal 0,5 mg per day and I take fish oil. However, my weight gain has been huge and it seems to be related to the Effexor, but I am not sure. I was on Seroquel 200 mg per day, which I stopped because I thought that made me gain weight, but nothing happened and I have continued to gain weight and more so since my Effexor dose has increased. Is there anything I can do? I don't eat all that much, but still the weight just seems to pile on? This does nothing for my self esteem!!!! Please, PLEASE, can someone advise me????
