    Does Pristiq Cause Weight Gain

    Hi....I've been on Prestiq now for about 7-8 months...and I definitly LOVE wht it has done for me.  I've tried others, but I really love that it makes me feel "myself" just without the edge! My only concern is that I've gained 25lbs....which is NOT GOOD. It's all in my hips and my abdomen area...so I would think it's the hormones?? I eat really healthy...and ironically I started working out 2-3 times a week around the same time that I started the medication...and NO it's not muscle weight...

    I just wanted to know if there was anything related to the Prestiq and the weight gain...and if there are any suggestions on how to stop the gain....without stopping the medication?

    Thank you in advance.....ME
