I lost 6 pounds in a week when I was on it. I had energy, too.

More energy, no weight gain. We're all so different!

Re: does effexor give you energy? and does cause weight gain?

I would never take effexor ever again. I know things effect people differently but effexor made me 10x worse. I was dizzy, naseous, and so much more anxious.
