My doctor put me on Effexor for about a month in May - I gained 10lbs during this time, despite vomiting about 4 times a day from the nausea and dizziness. As you can
imagine, I stopped taking it ASAP and
returned to Lexapro.
Once again I am losing weigh, am down to 128lbs, so I am much happier.
But the best part is that Lexapro makes me feel so much better, and I can address my depression in a calmer way and learn techniques to overcome this disease.
