Avatar n tn There are a variety of antidepressant medications and psychotherapies that can be used to treat depressive disorders. For moderate to severe depression, antidepressants are the treatment of choice. If someone had only mild symptoms, psychotherapy and/or medication could be used. Some sufferers do best with combined treatment: medication to gain relatively quick symptom relief and psychotherapy to learn more effective ways to deal with life's problems.
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 Adderall is speed, and while speed has long been used for depression, as they say, speed kills. You get used to it and have to keep taking more, and it's hard to stop taking it. It also makes people anxious, and a lot of depressed people are also anxious. Some antidepressants are quite speedy in and of themselves for many people who take them, so much so that they can also cause anxiety. Wellbutrin is the most speedy for the most people and the least likely to cause weight gain.

Avatar f tn Has anyone used the Lipo B 12 Injection to lose weight? How does it work? Does it affect your heart or liver?
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 t affect your reuptake of serotonin maybe it cannot be enough to treat depression used alone this is why it is widely used as an add-on medication to a SSRI or SNRI. Zoloft in the literature have no significant data of weight gain. Might be a good option. Maybe combine both if one don't work well. Anyway it's all thing that must be discussed with a qualified physician. Personally when it comes to meds I highly suggest a psychiatrist rather than a GP.

Avatar f tn First off, yes I know that Geodon is not a medicine for depression, and it's an antipsychotic, but I'm having a hard time navigating this website, and can't find the right page for this topic. My experience with Geodon has been wonderful, except for one thing: weight gain. I have always been somewhat in the dark as far as thinking that the only way a medication would cause weight gain would be if it made you eat alot, but boy, was I wrong.
