60 mg cymbalta weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about 60 mg cymbalta weight loss


Avatar n tn I started off on 30mg for 6 weeks and my weight fluctuated up and down about 3 pounds. I was feeling better but felt I needed to go up to 60 mg. I instantly had sever diarrhea, 10x day! This went on for 10 days and I read on a blog to try prilosec, which stopped the diarrhea. While I had the diarrhea I also had a loss of appetite and was not eating much. To my shock, when I weighed myself after the 10 days I had gained 3 pounds! How is that possible?
Avatar n tn I have been taking it since April and that hasn't abated any. Unfortunately I did not experience any weight loss or loss of appetite from it like everyone says. I take 200 mg a day. But if the other side effects haven't gone away, those proably don't either, and increasing the dose would probably make them worse. You could try phentermine or Bontril for appetite control if you wanted to try something with less side effects.
Avatar n tn It should take about 2 months to get to that dosage but I'm getting kinda excited hearing about the benefit of weight loss especially since it was weight loss pills (metabolife and xenedrine) that caused me to find out that I was epileptic in the first place! The doctor told me that i might get tingling in my fingers and i might feel a little dopy but happy dopy he described it as, so I figure i can deal with that! If I start losing weight at a rapid pace i'll definitely post again!
Avatar n tn I started taking Metformin for weight loss on 12/7/07 and have lost 8lbs. I was impressed because I was not that good over the holidays. I am back on to the program now and hope to continue to lose. It is helpful to see that other people have had sucess with Metformin.
Avatar m tn I lowered to 60 mg a day for a few days, (I ran out of Cymbalta) then started 20 mg per Dr. prescription on Celexa. I am definitely suffering withdrawal from Cymbalta. What dose should I be taking of Celexa to help avoid withdrawal? If both meds are SSRI, then why is withdrawal so bad?
1042487 tn?1275283499 I used it and I don't feel good today at all. cymbalta 60 mg + melatonin 10 mg. I am not sure because I slept 3 hours last night or there were any interactions. I bit worse than sleepy; my screen looks tilted to the left and some disorientation. Hope it goes away soon.
Avatar f tn I was placed on Cymbalta 60 mg for chronic pain by my PCP and took it for 1 year. I had weight gain, loss of libido, constipation, etc.etc. side effects so I decided it was not helping and wanted to stop it. I broke my pills open and poured out half for 2 days noticed light headedness and abd pain, 3/4 for 2 days felt light headed, fog brained, dizzy and than stopped all together.
Avatar n tn Hi everyone! I have been taking Effexor XR 150mg. for a month and I am experiencing weight loss. I went from weighing 169-172 lbs. to now weighing 155. I love this anti-depressant. I have found that it works for me when no other drug would. I have noticed that I get full fast and I have no desire to eat. I can only say that this drug has altered my sex drive considerably, but I was a bit over-sexed to begin with. The Effexor has made my sex drive more controllable.
329994 tn?1301666848 Cymbalta balances hormones. Stress hormone & another. Read what you get from the prescription. Take it at night if the nausea bothers you, until your body adjusts. After a few months, I was able to switch back to daytime. I take 30 mg. when I get up with lots of water. Then when I eat breakfast, I take the other 60 mg. At 60 mg. the pain & stiffness was gone. We added 30 mg. more for the depression. I have energy. Spring up from my chair without a struggle.
Avatar n tn I have been on Welbutrin for almost 4 months now and have noticed weight gain of about 8-10 pounds and I'm not eating anymore than I use to. I'm wondering if the 'weight-gain'/'weight-loss' issue is affected by whether or not people 'need' to lose weight before they start taking it. I consider myself to have a fairly high metabolism and I can maintain my weight quite easily. I know what causes me to gain weight and what I need to do to lose it.
Avatar n tn I'm not sure that Wellbutrin is a weight loss miracle. For me, I've noticed that it curbs my appetite tremendously. I forget that I'm even hungry. I see that others feel the opposite, so it depends on the person. But I did switch drugs because I was on Zoloft for a year and a half and gained 30 lbs. and could not, for the life of me, lose any of it. I could eat 700 calories a day and exercise 30 minutes a day and still not lose one pound.
Avatar n tn I`m just now getting results using a weight loss clinic. Pills, shots, diet exercise, and not much food. And water, lots of water. I am still on effexor and probably will be for a while yet. This diet , is at least motivating me to really keep working at it and hopefully be able to get off the diet meds, and the effexor sometime,too.
Avatar f tn Klonopin can cause weight loss or weight gain, depending on the individual. In me, it caused me to lose about 50 lbs. (and I am not a big individual). It also caused depression, decreased appetite, blurred vision, ineffective digestion and insomnia (it affects stages 3 and 4 of your sleep). I would highly recommend that an individual get on anything other than Klonopin (or any other of the Benzodiazepines). These are some of the most addictive drugs on the planet.
Avatar n tn I understand that it takes a long time to get this drug out of your system and the weight loss is very slow. I think that most of the 4 pound weight loss is because I fasted for a few days and took UltraClear which is a powdered "metabolic detoxification" product you mix with water. I used to only be able to get it through a doctor but now it is avaibale on the internet. It is a de-tox flush that I thought would help get Lexapro out of my system. I think it has helped.
Avatar f tn He has been taking 10 mg of Ambien nightly for maybe 8 YEARS, has been down to taking 5 mg for about a year. He has been taken off the Ambien, but what are the long term effects? I find alot of info on short term effects, but could his memory issues be due to AMBIEN? Please help.
Avatar f tn Your hormones will be messed up for years after stopping this shot. It will be your most difficult weight you ever lose. Weight loss is easier after pregnancy due to breast feeding and all the other hormones that go into effect after childbirth. I had always heard hormones are something very delicate that can be knocked out of kilter very easily. I was so happy to have such an easy form of birth control in DP, and was happy to be free of the periods. I will never do it again.
Avatar f tn I found something else though that keeps my mind in check but doesn't affect my weight negatively, but I exercise also and eat right. I'm on 10 mg of Haldol, 200 mg of Topamax and 2mg of Xanax for anxiety and that places me at the right state of mind. I just take the xanax as neeeded though so I don't get addicted.
Avatar f tn I called my doctor today and the nurse told me the reason for the 150 mg was that my family doctor wanted to help me with extra weight loss and thought this might do the trick. I asked about Cymbalta as I am taking 60 mg and he increased it to 120 mg, sort of nervous about this as it is designed at high doses for people with pain. That isn't me. We will see. The endocrinologist indicated my doctor had me in hyperthyroidism.
382404 tn?1207591700 I am currently taking 60 mg of Cymbalta and 2 grams (1 morning - 1 night) of Xanax. I do experience depression and panic/anxiety. How can I wean off of the drugs and get help for the depression, etc. without medication. I feel that the drugs are making me worse (anti-social, fear, weight gain, poor attitude and loss of any ambition to do anything but lay around). I desperately need help.
Avatar f tn Together they feel my symptoms can be managed by taking anti anxiety med (Cymbalta 30 mg/day then up to 60 mg/day after one week) and Belviq (2 x per day) to get the weight off that I have gained since feeling this way. I am sitting on both scripts, terrified to take either meds. What am I missing here? I feel awful. I started talking with a Nutritionist and she said to try grain & gluten free to help with the Hashi symptoms.
Avatar n tn two weeks after i had started the topamax i went on cymbalta 30 mg the first week then 60 mg the second, but i had to stop it cause quite honestly all that medication does is mess your body up. my whole digestive track and stomach has been messed up since, i started with constipation, now i have diarrhea often, stomach cramps, and loss of appetite from the topamax. i started smoking weed this year, and its the only thing that helps me eat and maintain my weight.
Avatar f tn Pediatric dose is 20 mg every other day. And yes, whoosh disappears within about 6 hrs of taking a dose of Cymbalta. I weaned slowly, my neurologist programmed the process but after a week or so off, the whooshy thing began and progressed to the point I couldn't work. My neuro did not prescribe it for the TN but had switched me to it per my request. I liken this "whoosh " sensation in the head to driving in my car, trying to tune in to a radio signal but my car can stay linked to it.
Avatar f tn I am taking 60 mg Paxil at night, 15 mg of Buspar 3 times a day, a thyroid pill, Neurontin for back pain, and have tried Trazodone, Remeron, Seroquel, Cymbalta, all of em for slsep. Nada. I can't fall asleep at all but I really, really have to be waken up in almost an ice cold pool of water to wake up.
7684852 tn?1437175492 What dosage are you on? When I first started Cymbalta at 30 mg it worked AMAZING the first time I actually had hope, but after about a month it started to lose its affects so she increased it again which only made it worse like almost the worst I've ever been, I was so incredibly suicidal and impulsive that I ended up in a psych hospital for almost a week. At the hospital they increased my Cymbalta (again) to 90 mg and added 150 of wellbutrin.
Avatar n tn I am currently taking 60 mg. of Cymbalta (morning) and 2 grams of Xanax (morning & bedtime) per day. How can I wean off of these drugs and get help with my depression and panic/anxiety? I feel like I am losing my mind and life is passing me by. I don't want to go anywhere, socialize, or even visit with family due to the weight loss. I feel like these drugs have caused the weight gain over the years and I can't lose weight even with diet and exercise.
694947 tn?1227991027 OK, have been prescribed pain killers for a few years. I was getting 180 norco and 60 Kadian for pain. I moved to WA and have been with out meds for a while. I went through minor withdrawls, no sleep, fatigue, no motivation runs, etc. Now I got my Dr up here and am getting a referal, and more meds. I am kinda wanting to shy away from the pain meds and deal with the pain, but instead go on an anti depressant, anxiety medication. I have symptoms of dresion an anxiety.
881463 tn?1245349249 for example paroxetine causes sedation and weight gain, and prozac causes activation and a bit of weight loss. Citalopram is weight and sleep neutral in most people. All SSRIs and SNRIs have sexual side effects, EXCEPT perhaps Pristiq, a new SNRI that has very low incidence of sexual side effects in the one or two trials that have been done with the medication.
Avatar n tn My doctor prescribed it for my migraines as I had requested it since all the other treatments seemed to have weight gain as a side effect while this one was the opposite with weight loss as a possibility. A year ago I tried Sibelium for 3 months and it worked but I gained 12 pounds in a month and a year later those pounds have not budged.
Avatar n tn Zoloft has more results for weight gain Effexor has results of weight loss and Paxil Wellbutrin and Cymbalta have had less complaints of weight gain ****
Avatar n tn My doc prescribed it for me for weight loss.( 50 mg/day) I have not lost a pound...nor have I lost my appetite. Irritability? Yes. Weight Loss--no. I am on Zoloft 50mg/day for depression for 11 years now. Does anyone know if Zoloft can deter the weight loss? I have been struggling with my weigbt for so long and have heard of people having such positive reults from Topomax. Any advice from anyone?
