About 6 weeks ago I started effexor. About 2 weeks ago, I stopped taking Yaz and started Loestrin 24 fe.

Here is my problem - I have gained 4 pounds in about a month's time. I workout very hard with weights and cardio at least 6 days a week, and I eat healthy. I have noticed a slight increase in my appetitie. My abdomen seems very bloated as well.

I wanted to know if anyone else had these symptoms while taking these meds. It's not worth it to me to get fat! I heard Wellbutrin is better for not gaining weight and I'm thinking about asking my doc to switch me to that....

Any input anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.
