I have been on fluoxetine for years and it's not doing anything anymore so I've been prescribed desvenlafaxine. I'm scared to try a different antidepressant as I've always been on fluoxetine. Does anyone have any experience on desvenlafaxine?

      @Pharlapsfetlocks no. I lost weight when I first started fluoxetine and over the years my weight has stayed the same.

      Did you experience weight gain with fluoxetine? Especially after taking it long term?

          @Gemma21 Ah OK. May just be my unsteady sugar levels then. Oh and my love of carbs 😋

One user shared their experience with desvenlafaxine, stating that their doctor switched them to it a few months ago and it's been much better than anything else they've tried. They also mentioned that everyone responds to medication differently so there's no way to know if it'll work for you, but if others aren't working then it might be worth trying what your doctor suggests. However, they cautioned about taking it regularly because missing a dose can cause side effects. Another user suggested that desvenlafaxine is a little calmer than venlafaxine, which makes it a little less effective but still helpful.
