> re: Effexor, I've been taking Effexor for about 3 months, and find my weight has remained stable (about 30 lbs. overweight). I don't feel I'm overeating, just coasting. Eventually, with the OCD and depression under control, I'll try to lose weight. The only med which seemed to make me gain weight (and quickly) was Zoloft--Cindy W

Thank you for collecting my thoughts and putting
them into words,

Good Ideas also, but in respect to med/weight,
I don't believe your eating habits for the most
part have anything to do with it. Don't get me
wrong,however, there has got to be some type of chemistry/metabolic link that we have in common
that our body reacts the way it does.

I do want to be convinced that metabolism plays
a party depending on the response. What I'd like
to do with this is some how get the manufacturer
to note this and possibly improve upon the drug.

Effexor has been the only thing which has helped
me to feel like a human being, but I can't take
it. I like to feel that I'm part of life rather
than someone in my body looking out observing life.

Renee, I wish you the health.

Everyone's comments are appreciated.
