Does Cymbalta cause weight gain. Also your thoughts on Effexor (venlafaxine). Don't want to gain weight and am currently on Wellburin.tx?

In brief: Be careful!

Even non-pregnant people need to be very cautious combining Wellbutrin (bupropion) with either of those medications - seizure risk is increased as well as other risks.
All anti-depressant seem to result in weight gain for some folk - even ones that cause loss in others. In your case - definitely work w/ your OBGYN to be safe. Try to find a diet plan that will be good for you, your baby and weight control.
