Are you familiar with what these are? These are medications that are given to those who are suffering from depression and anxiety disorders. Effexor is known to be more effective in making people forget about their anxiety, but if a person suddenly stops taking this, there is also a higher chance that he/she would start to experience withdrawal symptoms.

This can be a hindrance for people who genuinely want to recover. Effexor is also known to cause weight loss. Cymbalta is known to cause weight gain in other people, mainly if it has been used for a long time. In the beginning, they may also lose weight, but the more that they take it, the weight gain will become more evident.
