Hi How long have you been on Celexa and what dose? I just upped to 40mg, after being on Celexa for two years. I only take Celexa by itself. I have gained weight but only about 8 lb. and some of it could be just my age. 48...
I try best to eat well, and also exercise at the gym. I never lose the weight but I maintain and do go down 2 pounds when I am not on my period.
I think working out tones me...and the weight gain, though annoying, is so worth the benefits of the Celexa.
Have you gotten benefits from the drug in general?
I think all AD's cause weight gain. I have a friend on Paxil and I think she has gained on this one, as well. Paxil is known for weight gain.
Also try drinking water and eating fruits when you want to snack. I just had a pear.
p.s. hope to hear back from you. Were you already alittle overweight before starting Celexa? I can imagine, if so, this would be frustrating to get additional weight gain.
