> I am possibly going to start Effexor for depression. I have finally lost my excess weight and absolutely do not want to gain weight. Does Effexor cause weight gain or increase appetite?
I am using effexor for about 2 years 75mg/day, I am feeling good but I gained weight about 20lbs, my doctor said this is the side effect of effexor, it slows down metabolism, I tried dieting but I could not control my appetite, and now I can not do any workout because I feel very weak day by day and I am seriously thinking to quiet that.
