Use daily journal to track calories in (meals and snacks) and calories out (exercise) 4. Set slow and steady weight loss goal, i.e. lose 1 to 2 pounds per week. 5.

Avatar n tn Usually people gain weight when setting treated for depression. But everyone's different maybe it's a side effect from a medication your taking. Are you eating less? If yes then is it because you dot feel the need to eat, that your stomach hurts, or that you just can or won't eat?

Avatar f tn obsessed with dying, insomnia, panic attacks, loss of appetite with resultant 15 lb weight loss, so far. He is miserable, crying, telling people he has colon cancer, then lymphoma. His doctor put him on Lexapro but it takes a while to work. He was admitted through ER to the psych unit. The doctor there sent him home the next day, I'm sure because he didn't seem that severe. He sent him home with a prescription for Klonopin in addition to the Lexapro.

Avatar n tn m also feeling especially drained, and the past two mornings my anxiety has seemed more severe, and also resembling depression. Yesterday afternoon I felt better for about 3 hours, and then suddenly started to feel crappy again. I'm getting really worried about this.
Avatar f tn I fought medication but eventually had to take Prozac for several months until the depression resolved itself. I also talked with a pyscologist. I know you mentioned before that money is tight. Perhaps you can look into churches in your area. A lot of churches offer support groups for separated or divorce people. And most times these groups are non-denominational so you don't need to be a member of the church to benefit.
Avatar f tn Anyone else weight loss and hair loss getting out of control with depression anyone any advice thanx in advance
20801560 tn?1512718136 I inderstand what it is like tryinh to put weignt back on and get back to where you were and I am a retired combat veteran and a junior black belt in tae kwon do so I know how important exercise and fitness can be to a person. I have had to do both weight loss and weight gain after some problems that I had and weight gain was the hardest because the stomach needs to stretch, but that part isn't something that has to be rushed.
Avatar f tn Also this same medication was given to my oldest sister for weight loss.Well they uped her dose and she lost 21 pounds In 4 weeks!!! I am sorry but this much weight loss at one time can NOT be healthy No matter how over weight you are! This concerns me since she is also a Diabetic! she will hardley eat anything she has to force herself to eat cause of sugar.I am also over weight.
Avatar n tn If he doesn't want medication or psychotherapy, then he may benefit by an indirect form of self help therapy that he can find on, which is focus on stress and emotional eating, but goes deep into what may be bothering him.
Avatar f tn I think depression can lead to weight loss. Before i went on mirtazapine My weight was a bit under what is should have been. Now Ive put on over a stone and want to get off mitrazapine as it no longer helps with depression. But I lost nearly a stone five years ago due to severe depression so it can cause weight loss. I want now want to lose a stone and get back to my normal weight of 11 stone for my build . I hate being overweight.
Avatar f tn There have been different side effects for different mood stabilizers. Some antidepressants cause weight gain while others cause weight loss, some cause hair loss, some cause even more elevated mood. Definitely ask your doctor though if you are concerned about it so you might be able to get on a different kind.
Avatar f tn If I find myself losing weight, I try to counteract it... so, for me, the weight loss was minima (5 to 10 pounds at the most). But, I have had friends who have lost quite a bit of weight on topamax. It usually takes about three months before full results are seen. One forum member just posted that she lost over 40lbs on topamax and might actually have to stop the medication as that is also too much weight loss in her situation as well. It is all very personal.
Avatar m tn Do you guys have any explanation for the weight loss and reduction in testosterone levels? The loss in testosterone and weight is very large given the time span. What are some suggestions? Looking forward to hearing your thoughts.
