Hi! I have been on effexor xr for 4 months now due to deep recurring depressions and anxiety. I was hospitalized for a brief period. I realize now that I will be on medication for life to prevent a relapse. I don't like the idea, but realize that my life depends on it. I take 150 mg. of effexor xr. I started on effexor,klonopin, and ambien (for sleep) I feel great now. I have no anxiety or depression. I also discontinued klonopin and ambien without any problems. My concern is the weight gain. I have only gained 10 pounds, however when on paxil for my last depression I gained 40 pounds. My psychiatrist has talked about adding synthroid or something else to offset the weight gain side effect for me. Does anyone have any comments? Other than the weight gain, effexor has been highly effective!
