> The reason I'm asking is someone I work with was prescribed Effexor XL for weight lose. I can't find any information on Effexor XL being prescribed for weight lose and if it works. I take Effexor XR. I've taken it for about 8 weeks. In the last 3 weeks I've lost 13 pounds, but I've been dieting. I think the Effexor helps becuase I eat when I'm depressed, anxious, or under stress. I've read many posts where people are saying thy've gained weight while taking Effexor XR. I still have 40 pounds to lose and hope not to experience the weight gain side effect. If Effexor XL works as well for depression and anxiety as Effexor XR plus helps with weight lose I'd rather take the XL version.

Hi, I take XR (Extended Release) which is approved for GAD too-that's why I like it-it works for me. I don't know where you are, but in the US, XR may be the same as XL???
