In just over a year I gained 80 pounds on Effexor. While it was helping with my depression - going from a fit healthy looking body to 80 pounds higher made my depression worse. I'm now off the Medication (per doctors orders) and want to start losing as soon as possible. I'm getting married in June and while I know I won't lose 80 pounds by then, anything is better than nothing. Anyone else have experience losing weight gained while on antidepressants? Any advice?
