Discussions that mention paxil

Weight Loss board


I was taking paxil for about a year and gained nearly 30 pounds!!! Which caused me even more problems....see, I went on the Antidepressant for severe anxiety, not so much for depression...it was all the weight gain that has now made me more anxious and brought along with it depression.

Due to my anxiety many of the diet pills out there, i cannot take because they cause such an increased heart rate, I am starting to eat healther, excercise helps so much, and just plain calming down. I am taking the right vitamins and supplements. I came across the article for Fish oil and it really caught my attention when it said that many people who gained weight from AD's were taking figh oil to help lose weight because it also decreased their stress and anxiety....

Let me know what you think!
