I am currently on 25 mg of Paxil CR for Social Anxiety Disorder. It is helping a little but I have gained 25 lbs since I have been on it. I used to eat right and go to the gym all the time because I was so worried what people thought of me. Now I don't care what people think and I eat whatever I want and hardly ever go to the gym. I guess it's good that it is making me not care about what peolpe think but I still want to maintain my body. So what other drugs can I take for SAD that will not make me gain weight? I have done some searching on this site but not sure which drug is best for SAD. Any sugestions will be greatly appreciated.
So all these drugs will make me gain weight? I was thinking about trying to get my doctor to put me on Effexor for SAD and Valium for panic attacks. I'm just not sure what to do because there is so many drugs out there. Thats why I'm asking for advise because of everyone elses personnal experience with other meds.
