If you are getting the results you want from Effexor
, you probably don't want to switch. The reports of weight
gain for this medication are not that great, in fact, loss of appetite is more frequent. Weight gain can happen with any of them, so watch it closely and only switch if it really starts to happen. Then be careful to taper off over a two period, because a rebound from precipitous cessation, is possible and would be uncomfortable.
