i have heard for venlefaxine in is weight stable on average and some people lose weight. obviously some people will gain weight as well. i have binge eating disorder so it complicates the picture for me but i have not put on as much weight as i usually do since starting this medication so i think it is okay compared to other anti depressants or not being on any on that front for me. i dont feel hungry all that much. i am on 112.5mg for 3 days, 75mg for about 3 months. so i have not been on it for years or anything or on a high dose.
