Does EVERYONE gain weight on Effexor?

I am so frustrated. I really need meds and doc put me on Effexor. I am only on 37.5 for now and will increase next week. Everything I read says it cause weight gain. I cannot afford to gain any weight. Does it cause this in everyone? Or even most?

Thanks,
Joanne

Re: Does EVERYONE gain weight on Effexor?

most stay the same weight, some gain and some lose

fear of weight gain is often used as an excuse to not take one of these antidepressant meds

I have been on Effexor XR 75 mg for 10 months and have had no weight gain.
