Discussions that mention prozac

Eating Disorder Recovery board


Hello,

can you tell us the name of the medication?

I remember being put on something years ago (for OCD), and I stopped taking it after 3 days I think because I read so much about the side effects, specifically weight gain. That was Zoloft. And some people maybe gain on it, but others don't. Now for over 6 years I have been on Prozac (which works quite similarly) and I haven't had any weight gain from it. And still, some other people who have taken it say they have gained weight on it.
So everybody's different. but those who experience a side effect are more likely to write about it online than those who don't, we have to keep that in mind too.
There are some medications that are more notorious for weight gain than others. That's why I was curious what you are taking.
