Loss of appetite a side effect of Effexor?

I recently increased my dosage of Effexor XR to 112.5mg. I noticed that I haven't been as hungry. I'm usually a pretty big eater, but now I usually don't feel like eating dinner. I ate barely anything today. I've heard of weight gain as a side effect of Effexor, but is appetite loss a known side effect as well? Just curious...

I gained alot of weight going on effexor. I haven't heard of weight loss as a side effect. But that doesn't mean it isn't one.

I have been on effexor for about 3 months. I take 75mg xr once a day. I dont have much of an appetite like I use to either.

Effexor made me so sick that I couldn't eat at all , so I dont know about decreased appetite.
