Common Questions and Answers about Adderall and lexapro weight loss

lexapro

Avatar n tn the only side effect that I am experiencing with the topamax is I feel a little goofy at times and my spelling and overall loss of words at times can be bothersome....Can anyone tell me if the weight loss and loss of appetite will decrease.... I am on 100mg a day... does anyone think I should increase my dosage? ( of course w/ my drs. permission)... this has truly been a great drug for my mood swings as well.....
Avatar n tn The tingling in fingers, the mood swings, the stomach issues, and yes the weight loss and FATIGUE. I am only on 50 mg, and will not take more. I am surprised that so many people want to use this drug as a weight loss product. This is not a weight loss product, it is a serious drug, with serious side effects that you have to live with for the rest of your life. If I did not have to take it, I would not.
Avatar n tn Doc says I'am borderline diabetic and need to lose weight. The drug was prescribed to help with the weight loss. However she stressed that you still need to watch your diet and exercise. I have been doing this for a long time but kept going up and down with my weight. I am 5 4" and currently weigh 235.5. I weigh in every Tuesday and after 4 days I lost 3 pounds. I am now starting to take the meds 2 xs a day so it will be interesting to see what happens next week.
Avatar n tn I currently take 25mg of topamax in the morning and 50mg at night. I have been on it for 3 weeks and haven't seen any weight loss or side effects. Each week I will increase my dose 25mg. Does anyone have any advise for me. Does this topamax really help people loose weight. I'm a heavy pot smoker and that really gives me the munchies. I know that In order to stop eating at night I got to stop smoking pot. But overrall does Topamax work for weight and when will I see any changes?
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.
Avatar n tn My psychiatrist is weening me off the Lexapro and is giving me Topamax which should induce weight-loss and also lessen the side effects of going off the Lexapro. Unfortunately, there is a lot of side effects of Topomax as well but weight gain is not one of them and need to loose the weight now !!!!
Avatar n tn helps with depression and helps with weight loss. I swear by it..I too gained about 15 pounds on Lexapro and Wellbutrin and didn't like how it made me feel. 5 htp has almost no side effects.. a little jittery for first week and that's it.
Avatar n tn When i was you and started Wellbutrin i'd almost want to raise the dose just to keep loosing weight that had eventually cought up well, i was taking 750 mg and my Dr. then adds Lexapro and Adderall. Let ma tell you Lexapro makes you gain too. I have done research and I am off Wellbutrin and trying to get off Lexapro but i am so sick tight now and I even tapered off the Lexapro and I have been sick since Tuesday that is the reason I am on this forum.
Avatar n tn I drink one in the morning and one at night if I don't have time for dinner. I am also on Adderall and find that is the cause for the forgetfulllness of eating but am always thirsty. The drink replacements seem to keep my wieght steady. I also take a multi-vitamin.
Avatar n tn It did work well for depression, and I did have the beneficial side effect of the weight loss as well. I have taken Zoloft and Lexapro in the past which also worked well for depression, but similar to others on this site, I couldn't stand the weight gain. So I tapered off and ultimately quit. I have to be honest and say that when I took the Wellbutrin (in my late 30's) my figure looked amazing (better then in highschool).
Avatar n tn After being on welbutrin for 2 months I had lost 25lbs. I was suprised and happy with the weight loss and energy. However, I couldn't sleep at night and started feeling like my heart was skipping a beat or maybe having an extra one everyday. My blood pressure and pulse were crazy high compared to what they normally were and at times I literally felt sick at the sight of meat on my plate. (Weird, I know).
Avatar n tn i was noticing more and more hair loss, and just a little weight loss. I called my pharmacist who said that hair loss isn't really common with topamax and should go away in a few weeks when my body get used to it. i just couldnt lose anymore, i had extremely thick hair and now i can see my scalp which i hate. i use nioxin which helps grow hair (shampoo, conditioner, scalp treatment, and follicle booster) and just continued to lose it.
Avatar n tn It's not funny but I'm so tired and just can't get pregnant due to work rules (military deployment) so I need some relief and some weight loss!!!!
Avatar f tn I remember being a puffy mute on lexapro and zyprexa. Not only was my usual 130 pound jewish frame elevated to 170 within months I felt suicidal for the first time in my life. I found a combo of wellbutrin/zoloft that seems to serve me well. After hearing my complaints of fatigue he added adderall. It does help but it's but you can develop tolerance fairly quickly and it's drawing on your body's essential vitality (chi) to do this.
Avatar n tn My husband will be going on antidepessants and I would like comments on Lexapro and Lexapro vs Effexor Xr. All comments are heplful. Thank you!
Avatar m tn Also horrible insomnia and complete loss of appetite. (Disappointing because the help with school and work it provided was very benificial) Strettera - Increased anxiety, aggression, aggitation, suicidal thoughts Clonazepam - Effective for anxiety, but also caused memory problems...too much of a hinderance on work and school for consistent use. Ultimately, I ended up using Clonazepam as needed for serious bouts of anxiety or full-blown panic attacks.
Avatar m tn They also recommend Acupuncture, as this has been known to help settle the muscles and nerves that become completely tenses up during a taper. -I'm kind of at a loss, and not quite sure what to do as she wants to taper Klonopin first and then Xanax. Though I think it would make sense to work out a taper plan for both using Valium (diazepam) as a cross-over.

Therefore, I am going to share with you all what *I* know about these phenomena, and hopefully reassure some of you that this is par for the anxiety course...it while irritating, maybe even maddening...it is totally harmless. Derealization and depersonalization are two terms that are sometimes used interchangably. Truth is, they DO vary a little bit in their presentation....

Avatar f tn Katie928, I can relate. But you may want to go back in and consult your psychiatrist. The reason I say this is b/c I too have ADHD but I also have Bipolar Disorder. I was first diagnosed w/BPD in 2006, a yr later my mind kept racing and I knew something wasn't right. Went back in to my doc. What often happens, and this is proven thru research, is that someone w/a chemical inbalance disorder has a 60% higher chance at having another disorder.
Avatar n tn Especially if your taking any other meds, drink a lot of caffine or if you stare at a computer screen a lot, DRINK TONS OF WATER!!! I personally take adderall, drink caffine and am always on the computer -perfect recipe for dry eyes! If you don't have enough water in your system to constantly keep your eyes moist (blinking), the tube (whatever it's called) that drains your eyes to the back of your throat can get clogged and the only place for it to get clogged...

Avatar n tn I was on YAZ (for cramps and pms) and Adderall (for adult attention defecit disorder) at the same time for about a year, and started feeling faint while at work and in public. A couple of times I felt numbness in my face, and decided to go off of both. Many times I felt as though I couldn't fill my lungs up all the way with air -- so I would do breathing exercises. I did research and found that both were responsible for causing blood clots and strokes.
798555 tn?1292791151 Pain mostly went away with thyroid meds, but she's been having foot pain again along with unusual weight gain and her new doc tested her FREE T3 finally....low. So she's now adding Cytomel and lowering her T4 and being monitored for adjusting her meds to her Free levels. She says she already has an increase in energy and lessening of foot pain after not quite 2 months.
Avatar f tn Ever since then i sometimes (about once every few months) experience this odd sensation and it can become a bit worrying and strange. The whole room seems to have a new feeling to it- everything im doing whether it be walking or typing seems to intensify and become louder yet the actions are very exaggerated and almost speed up (only perceived this way). I find it very difficult to explain fully but i'm worried it's some early signs of a neurological condition or something?
Avatar n tn I was on celxa ( bad dreams) cymbalta ( made me more depressed didnt leave apt for 3 days) the generic equiv to pamelor ( whooshing was too intense) and Effexor 75 mg sent me to ER, I had dizyness, tingling spine and hands and my Bp went to 168/94. I went back to doctor and he perscribed me a low dose Lexapro take one pill every other day, and he had me get Sam-E and a energy metabolizer which was called L carnitine I believe.
Avatar f tn The only thing that temporarily helps my depression and social anxiety is b vitamin injections (accidently realized this seeing a weight loss dr.) , adderrall, and smoking a cigarette. Weird I dont get addicted but I smoke to get a break from my darkness and hopelessness. My husband smokes regularly and he doesnt get the feeling I get. He is irritable and shows withdrawal symptoms wen he needs a cigarette.
