I am having no weight gain, in fact I have lost 3-4 pounds on PaxilCR - at one day short of two weeks on it.
I've seen so few in agreement with this at any of the depression boards, but I am the third client my therapist has that is either not gaining or is losing weight. My appetite is quite decreased and I have no food cravings whatsoever.
I have not tried Celexa, but its "new" Lexapro version (reworked Celexa) - I have & had bad, bad stomach cramps in middle of night. A psychiatrist has told me this is not uncommon.
