Can There Be Side-effects From Taking Deplin, Such As Weight Gain?

I was recently put on Deplin to enhance the effects of my anti-depressant Effexor.

I have started gaining weight in my stomach or lower abdomen. I'm a slender person

and this has bothered me somewhat. Could Deplin be the cause?

Answer

Janet,

Deplin contains folic acid and L-methylfolate. I couldn't find any data showing that it can cause weight gain, but your body may be reacting differently. I'd suggest giving your doctor a call.

Good luck,

Teri
