I have been on Effexor (between 150 - 187 mg) for 9 years now and have gained 35-40 pounds with no diet change (in fact my diet is better) and consistent rigorous exercise. I am in a very good place and started the weaning process this week.
I've done this twice before with Paxil and remember the weight just falling off at one point. I know it will take me a year to two years to completely wean, if I can be successful. 5 years ago I tried to wean and went too fast and things got really bad really quicjly, so I got back on.
So, has anyone experienced weight loss just by reducing their dose? Like there was a threshold that once you got below that you were able to lose weight again? Maybe not all that you gained, but a portion?
I am just not wanting to wait 2 years to get this weight off. But, might have to.
