Im 18 years old and have tried quite a few other medications and have only ever experienced weight gain on quetiapine which was due to increased appetite. I started venlaflaxine after christmas and originally I put it down to Christmas time and eating more, but over the last 3-4 weeks ive been eating perfectly healthy. I havent been eating more then my 3 meals which are just how they were before and ive started running more about 40 minutes a day 5 days a week. And ive only gained weight!! I dont feel fat but im definetly more swollen, today i put on my jeans which were to big for me before starting venlaflaxine and i couldnt even button them up and even worse i couldnt zip my boots up that were able to slide on/off before. Ive gained 6 kg since starting it and im only 5"1 and am usually around 49kg so its quite drastic for my figure. Im thinking i should come off it has anyone else had this issue?
