I have gained so much weight from these meds. I've been taking them for a while - like 9 years. I started out on Prozac and gained like 50lbs over a very short period, but then it tapered off, but after about 7 years on Prozac, it pooped out on me. When that happended, I started taking a combo of Paxil and Remeron and gained an addition 20lbs! It's amazing to me. I am very active, I never had a weight problem in my life, but over the years I had learned to accept it and just be happy that I wansn't feeling crazy anymore. Latley, I have heard of a new drug call Lexapro and I am going to the Dr's tomorrow and talk with him about it. Apparently, it doesn't have the weight gain side effect and I am hoping to switch, and lose weight if possible. I have tried every diet in the book and it just seems like I am fighting a losing battle.
So, you are not alone. Feel free to e-mail me anytime. I truly do understand.
