Discussions that mention paxil

Weight Loss board

i take PAXIL CR (for chronic migraines) and SINGULAIR (for allergies)... does ANYONE know if either of these drugs would make me Hold On To Weight? Gain Weight? or Stop Me From Losing Weight? HELP MEEEEEEEE!
I was on paxil for depression/anxiety and I gained so much weight! Like 20lbs in a few months. I switched meds and the weight slowly came off. Not everyone reacts to the meds the same way so you may not find a problem. But for me and my mom they increased our appetites and slowed our metabolism so it was a double wammy!!!
My doctor said paxil is notorious for causing weight gain.

E1979, what med did you switch to?
