I am a 30 year-old male and have been taking SSRI medications for Depression and GAD for about six months now (the first two months Celexa and the last four I crossed over to
Paxil.) I am very pleased wit
h these medications and have had good results wit
h both of them. They have improved my life a great deal. how
ever, both medications instantly caused a weight gain of 10-15 pounds, a side effect my Psychiatrist mentioned might happen.
