Avatar n tn Can Wellbutrin be safely combined with Buspar? I've taken both drugs individually, but never together. The Wellbutrin works great to control overeating, increase energy, libido, etc., however, it makes me obsessive, anxious, and negative...which brings back the depression I originally took it for. The Buspar works well to relieve depression and anxiety, but it increases my appetite and causes overeating.
Avatar f tn the most common cause is anxiety or depression that is leads to a sense of powerlessness, which is actually transformed into emotional, rather than physical, hunger. You can get more information about this on my website, shrinkyourself.
958510 tn?1246820471 I also take exffor XR for depression, but i have not been overeating. My symptoms are extreme weight gain from 180 lbs. - 230 lbs. in under 3 months, swelling in hands, feet and joints, numbness in my toes that is constant, fatique, and the worst is the persistant nauesa 5-20 mins everytime after eating. The doctors have ruled out pregnacy from a urine test however i have heard that u can still be pregnant and i still have my periods however they are irregular.I never vomit though.
Avatar f tn Hello Rachel, From a young adult perspective, i understand what you're going through. I don't think its a case of depression but instead, its just your hormones have started to work more frequently which may cause you to have unusual habits like overeating, staying home and not wanting to do anything. Remember to eat frequently but less :) hope this had helped you.

Is tther anyone out ther withthe dual diagnosis of ADD and PCOS and how do they manage it?
Avatar m tn today after lunch with the girls, I got a voicemail from someone threatening to sue me. Of course, I was shocked, stressed, depressed. Felt like a **** magnet - cried and cried and cried. I haven't cried like that since... since my brother passed away - ok, that crying was worse. But I haven't cried continuously as I did today - took an anti sychotic to destress me, slept most of the later afternoon and evening.
Avatar m tn They are sugary meals, which constipate, or a lot of meat. Overeating may cause"heavy stomach" since all this food takes more time to be digested and stays more time in the stomach before proceedes to intestine. Sugary meals can also cause bloating. Not enough flluid and moving, together with stress or depression, and you have a recipe for constipation.
Avatar n tn My question is that i was given wellbutrin xl 150 mg, for my pmdd and depression, which leads me to overeat. My docter said this would help, well i have been on it a week and while it has made a difference in my eating habits, it has been very hard on my vision. I keep seeing black spots and having really blurry vision. Should I stay on it, will this go away, or is there another AD that will help with overeating and depression? Please help I am scared!!!!
Avatar n tn I guess no one thinks overeating is an addiction. I have tried everything in the world with success, but short-lived. My overweight is affecting my health and my mental stability, which is none too good anyway. Does hypnosis help? Please don't preach diet and exercise - i probably know more about ways to lose weight than anyone else i know. It always comes back with a vengeance. . .i am desperate...
Avatar f tn If you have a weight problem, it just may not be addiction to food. Common causes like overeating, lack of exercise, diabetes, hypothyroidism have to be ruled out in your case. You must then look for other causes. One is water retention due to low serum protein. This along with anemia can cause unexplained weight gain. Adrenal gland problems are the other cause. Cushing’s syndrome should be looked for. The kidney function too should be assessed.
Avatar n tn Finally, because she was unable to maintain her weight, she suffered some depression during her senior year and began to binge. Her weight continued to increase. We got her to a therapist and although the binging has stopped, her weight continues to increase. We had taken her to our family doctor that year, but he was unable to identify an issue. He did some significant blood work and there was nothing out of line.
Avatar n tn I have gained about 20 pounds and I am afraid I will gain more.I feel that I have some depression and I am wondering if there is a medication that helps with weight gain and mood stablizer. One time my doctor put me on topamax and it helped with weight gain and mood although I got afraid of it. what is your opinion on this drug or do you know of a good med treatment I can talk to my doctor about? I am so glad to have found a site like this. A great help and hope.

1401945 tn?1280932432 there are two main reasons for overeating/weight gain after a miscarriage. One reason is simple..hormones. Your body still retains pregnancy hormones for awhile, so it takes the body a little bit of time to figure out that it's not pregnant and to let go of the pregnancy tendencies. The Other reason is a little more complicated....depression.
15467721 tn?1440788862 I want to gain more weight and with my depression and anxiety, I constantly eat. I try to keep myself at a steady 3 meals a day but this has developed to nearly 6 times of eating. I'm worried about my metabolism and if this could be binge eating. I hide food in my room and cannot sleep with the thought of eating, and even after large meals I need to find something to snack on. My hunger is barely satiated and I always feel hungry. Please, give me any advice.
Avatar f tn I was wondering if anyone else is willing to share their experience with overeating, and possibly be a support for me for when I get the urge to do it and/or after I have done it and maybe things I can do when I get the urge to overeat. I would also like to know the negative health effects it is having on my body. Thank you.
1965148 tn?1354978634 I do this too! I either over eat during a short amount of time then I feel guilty and ashamed or I either don't way at all and starve myself.
1578129 tn?1296311038 I've been eating too much lately. I just started working out again today. I did yoga and it was hard, but it was nice to do it. I had chilis and a ton of potatoes today. So greedy and I feel so gross.
1578129 tn?1296311038 Ok, so I've been pigging out all day. I'll list it: Salad Half a Biscuit, Yogurt with Pineapples Noodles PB&J Nutella & Butter Grilled Cheese Apple Sauce Angel Cake with Strawberries & Whipped Cream Pasta with Cream Sauce & Peas Ok.... that's about it. Whew!!!!!!! GREEDY! Tomorrow I'm going to work out and not eat like a pig! GROSS! So I don't know if I've felt the baby or not. I thought maybe today and then I changed my mind.
Avatar m tn I ate way beyond a maintaining level. I'm gonna have to pay for today....
Avatar n tn I've eaten extremely excessive amounts of food today, I just CAN. NOT. FEEL. FULL. I'm in pain right now from all the food I've consumed, but I still feel sort of hungry. I've grown too accustomed to eating the wrong things, at the wrong time and in the wrong amounts. I'm going to establish an eating schedule from which I will not deviate, and track my success in my calender. I need to eat better, move more, feel better about myself. I was really anxious when I awoke.
Avatar f tn hiroaki`s mom sent me cookies and i ate many of them even though i vowed to myself that i would have a lighter dinner than usual
