My dr put me on effexor about 2 months ago. My stomach really bloats bad. I look like I am 9 months preg. and I feel like I am gaining weight. Anyone else have these problems?

    weight gain
    Weight gain is common but you may be on the extreme side. It may be also from post chemo induced menopause and being less active after treatment.
    I often have trouble figuring out what causes the various stuff since treatment.
    Talk to the doctor, it may mean adjusting the dose?
