Effexor XR (Venlafaxine)
« on: October 30, 2017, 09:38:17 AM »
One year on Effexor and I gained 20 lbs. I work out 6 days per week (3 weightlifting, 2 Bikram Hot yoga, 1 Pilates) as well as walking at least 5 miles per day 7 days per week on a treadmill at 4.0 and I was still gaining weight. Nothing I did, including removing all alcohol from my life (a usual weight loss guarantee) helped. I weaned off Effexor at the beginning of September and a month later - still was gaining. Day 3 of SPD - lost 1.4 lbs. Finally!
