Were you able to lose the weight easily after going off or did you have to work on it? I gained 20 pounds on paxil and cannot stand it. I just want to be my former self again but going on a diet feels over whelming to me and I really do not eat any more than I used to eat before the paxil. I guess I just want to know if anyone here had the same experience and did the weight come off and if it did not come off what did you do to get it off? Thank you.
hi! i got off of paxil about 4 months ago and i gained about 20 pounds. im starting to notice now that the weight is coming off but very slowly. my doctor told me some people lose it fast and some people it takes a little time. but im just happy it is coming off and im just watching the way i eat.
I gained 30 pounds on Paxil. Weened myself off of it and a year later am still having a hard time getting rid of the extra weight. Paxil slowed me down and made me feel like a zombie. I was pretty upset with my doctor for prescribing it to me for my PMS. She knew I had a problem with weight gain as it was.
