Hi everyone:

I want to get off Paxil because I put on 20 lbs. Yuck! Does anyone know of another seratonin based anti-depressant that doesn't cause weight gain?

thanks

thanks BlondieNYC. Wellbutrin I don't think is serotonin based. I need the serotonin to calm down and sleep better.

Celexa is one of the newer SSRIs that I've heard is good, though I've also read that patients who experience weight gain on one SSRI are more likely to experience it on others. If your psych doc specificially indicated SSRIs are necessary, why not try modifying your diet?

Keeping a meal diary is a key to finding out where your nutritional deficits are. I saw a nutritionist for a while because I had trouble keeping weight on, though I thought I ate enough, apparently I wasn't eating a balanced enough diet. When you have nutrtional deficits, you're more likely to crave food. Just a thought.

Don't forget to have them run a thyroid panel on you as well, depending on your age, the symptoms for depression, thyroid, and menopause, are all real close. Are you working out ?

yes I agree about the furry animals they are so great to have and love.

I took Celexa for awhile and didn't gain any weight with it, I didn't have any side effects with it at all.
