I too gained weight while on Effexor. Approx. 25-30 lbs in a year and a half. I've been off Effexor for about a month and a half now. The withdraws do go away! It takes a couple of weeks, but it did happen for me. I have been able to loose a little weight - slowly - probably through diet and exercise. I was hoping that after quitting the Effexor, that the weight would drop off as easily and as quickly as it piled on. That doesn't seem to be the case - at least not for me. I went from almost no exercise to about 2.5 miles a day on the treadmill, pilates, and other misc. activities. I've also really started to watch what I eat - and make a conscious effort ot eat better. I was a size 0-2 & 115 lbs when I went on Effexor. While on it, at my heaviest, I was a size 10-ish, and about 145 lbs. Needless to say, stopping the weight gain was my primary motivation for getting off the Effexor. All in all, its been my experience so far, that you'll really have to work at it to loose the weight after quitting the medication. I'm still looking for encouragement from anyone else who's won the battle of loosing weight after quitting the Effexor. Hope this helps!
