> Any weight gain or sleepiness with Effexor? It is a good drug for me but this GI upset is making irritable.


I don't think I had any significant weight gain from the effexor and figured it all had to do with ones diet and activity levels until I went on mirapex. I gained ten pounds in one month and all around my waist! I look like a beach ball with a little tennis ball for a head.

Try adding an apple a day and let me know if this helps any. Zantac has really helped me with heartburn which I've had pre-effexor.

Glad to hear that it is helping! Maybe a pharmascist can also help with the belly-aches.

Iniatilly it did make me tired but once I got over 150mg the tiredness from the med was gone. I hate to comment on drowsiness from a med because fatigue is my main problem so its hard to say what's me and what's medication.

Keep in touch, and come chat over on the social board!
