Depression treatment weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Depression treatment weight loss


Avatar n tn I'm not sure what you're asking us. Has the weight loss left you at an unhealthy weight for your height and build? If so, you need to see your doctor immediately. If you are happy about the weight loss and find it beneficial to your health, consider that a very nice side effect. Some ADs DO affect our weight, but usually not to extremes. You are not losing weight at a dangerous rate. 4.5lbs a month is a safe and healthy rate.
Avatar m tn i have chronic tonsillitis problem is it responsible for weight loss right now i am 5'8" and i weighs 50 kg??????please also suggest some remedies or diet to gain some weight.....
Avatar n tn If you have cut down on fat and carbohydrates then this can explain the weight loss. There are many causes like worms in stool, depression, anorexia nervosa, AIDS, cancers especially colon cancers, drug abuse, infections and loss of appetite. Loss of appetite can again be due to certain medications, drug abuse, depression, AIDS, acute and chronic infections, cancers and hypothyroidism. Either you do not eat well or there is increased metabolism as in hyperthyroid states, HIV, cancer etc.
Avatar f tn There are plenty of antidpressants on the market and sure there are ones that do not cause weight gain. In fact some might cause weight loss. My hypo sister takes lexapro, she hasn't gained weight, in fact she lost big time, although not saying it is due to lexapro. Thyroid treatment should be based on the latest TSH level with another test in 4 to 6 weeks to confirm the first TSH test. Treatment should not be based on previous years because TSH can go back to normal in some people.
Avatar f tn i know its common to lose weight with hep c treatment but is it normal to lose almost a stone the first week?,, im on week 16 of the treatment and have lostjust over 2 1/2 stone, i was 11 stone when i started im just under 8 1/2 now and its getting me down, i hate been skinny, im on 2 ensure plus drinks a day and eat 1 meal a day, i dont do any exersize ( no energy) so why am i still losing weight?
Avatar f tn i was diagnosed with hep c in 2004 and its took me 7 years to get the treatment due to the fact i used to be a self harmer and the treatment could make you deppressed, i started 16 weeks ago and iv never been more mentally stable, i no longer take my anti-depressants of which iv been on for almost 16 years (since i was 16), what is getting me down is the weight loss and my skin has started to peel, does anyone else have that problem?

408795 tn?1324935675 But no matter what the cause of Major Depression the treatment is still the same. The most effective treatment for Major Depression is a combination of psychopharmaceutical treatment and therapy. As the LA treatment center's web page says "An interferon-alpha induced mood disorder is very simply a depressive disorder that is caused by HCV treatment." Cheers!

86075 tn?1238115091 WEDNESDAY, March 5 (HealthDay News) -- Mice given the weight-loss drug rimonabant became resistant to alcohol's fat-building effects in the liver, which suggests the medication may help fight alcoholic fatty liver in humans, says a U.S. study. Alcoholism is the leading cause of liver disease in Western societies, according to background information in the study.
Avatar f tn Can a person who is not a diabetic take metformin for weight loss.. I need to loose 60lbs i have tried other prescription's diet pill's and i'am immune to them they work for awhile then nothing.
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 these meds can make a huge difference in peoples lives and for many will help them get through treatment since the tx drugs can cause depression.
Avatar f tn then i will have a day where i will eat what ever i like. i do not see the physical weight loss on me but everyone around me keeps noticing it. i use to weight 7 and a half stone now i am 6.10 stone so i am just abit confussed with what is happening and dont understand why i am doing this? is it worth seeing a doctor? and could it be depression?
Avatar n tn I never had to push for treatment at all. Matter of fact, I was given medication before I even knew that my t3 level was elevated, but what information I've gotten on hyperthyroidism, I got for the web and not from my doctor. I also was diagnoised with clinical depression and I believe that this may have been my problem all along.
Avatar f tn Some people stay the same or actually gain weight on treatment which is hard for me to understand but it happens. When you think about it though, we're trying to consume higher fat foods to enhance ribavirin absorption and those types of foods tend to stick the ribs more. You have to be careful after treatment because it's easy to pack the pounds on and cholesterol shoots up with many too.
Avatar m tn experiences indicate that smoking medical marijuana can both relieve nausea and stimulate the appetites of patients with nausea, reducing the risk of unhealthy weight loss in patients with conditions like cancer and AIDS.
