Both weight loss or gain can be a side effect of Effexor.  I'm actually losing on Effexor after gaining on Remeron.  WB is also likely to make you lose weight.

Of course, that should not be the primary reason for choosing an AD.

Never gained an ounce on either Effexor XR,Cymbalta, Reboxetine, Provigil, or Selegiline. When I took Strattera I lost 9 pounds and no matter how much I ate I could not gain it back, then I gave up trying.

There is a reason SSRIs are the meds tried first with most people.  All things considered, they have the fewest side effects for most people.  What about changing to another SSRI?  Zoloft or Prozac might help with the gain. 

Wellbutrin is a good bet as long as you don't have anxiety problems.  If anxiety is a problem it can be taken in conjunction with Paxil to help with the weight gain and give you an extra neurochemical kick in the ass.
