Hi ABC! I was taking Effexor XR and I found it gave me awful personal odor. The minute I stopped taking it, the odor subsided. I wonder if it's the way some meds affect our livers and systems in general. My husband too has a fatty liver and has an odor about him that drives me nuts. I have to holler at him(in a nice way) to shower more often but I know some of it can't be helped. He's taking Metformin too for blood sugar, so with the blood sugar problem that can give him a different odor. Just my two cents but hope it is helpful. Take care--Hopeto--
