how long does it take effexor to get out of my system when I quit and when can I expect to see the weight gain begin to drop

I stopped using Effexor over six months ago and I gained a lot of weight. I have yet to lose any weight. I wish I would have known this before ever taking this. Have you lost any weight yet?

I thought I had a thyroid problem because I was showing many symptoms of hypothyroid. I went to my doctor and put me on Effexor and told me my thyroid was fine but I was depressed. Well, I started taking the Effexor in March 2006 and after gaining almost 60 lbs in 9 months decided to stop taking it. Even now almost a year later I have not been able to lose the weight. I had lost almost 40 lbs in 4 months before I started taking effexor but now even with the same routine and eating habit s as before I CANNOT lose the weight. If I had known the effect Effoxor would have on my weight I would never had takien it, and it had no effect on my symptoms! Stay away from Effexor!

I had the opposite - Effexor really helped me be more outgoing and confident and I ended up being a lot more active and making smart eating choices. I actually lost weight on it..and I'm still losing weight! :-) I have ADHD and am on Vyvanse, and I was worried about Effexor mellowing me out or making me "numb", but it really did the opposite. My life has become waves better.

I too have been way better on effexor.....energy level is good....and I actually feel like taking care of my self better..eating better...exercising alot....and losing weight....but I started out overweight so its all good

I do find too, if I miss a dose...anxiety is real bad.....way worse than before I went on the drug.

I kind of wish though I had not of gone on it....as I now dont know if I'll ever be able to go off.

effexor helped me gain 30 lbs that I didn't need and I too tried coming off of it and it's horrible. I lasted one day and went right back on it..I don't ever see how I can come off of it, I thought I would come out of my skin when I missed one dose...not cool. I went on it because I was diagnosed with stage IIIc cancer and couldn't take any hormone replacement after a complete and total hysterectomy--it helped with my depression immensely but 4 years later, I wish I could get rid of this weight (easier it took me months to lose even ten pounds-which I've already put back on) and just be free from this pill.

I have gained a lot of weight and suffered side effects from effexor that were NOT mentioned in the drug warning I received when I was prescribed the drug. I am looking into a class action lawsuit against the makers of this drug based on the fact that these horrible side effects are never disclosed to the consumer.
