Fluoxetine and loss of appetite

Common Questions and Answers about Fluoxetine and loss of appetite


Avatar m tn There are two antidepressants that Vyvanse should not be taken with, those are Prozac and Paxil. They slow down the excretion of Vyvanse considerably and you are left with an undesired and non-therapeutic build up of Vyvanse. The symptoms you are having correlate with this. It may not be found in the literature but if you look up Dr. Charles Parker on YouTube, he explains this in detail in one of his 37 videos. He works closely with Dr.
Avatar f tn Anorexia and decreased appetite. But please understand that we all react differently to medications. I've known people to LOSE weight on Prozac...........so don't take anything as gospel until you've given it a fair trial.
Avatar f tn I take 40mg of fluoxetine a day in the mornings. I didn't start leveling out until after I had been taking it a month. So, just give it some time. Make sure you take it at the same time every day, that is really important. And don't drink alcohol, that is important too. If you think it's not working for you after two months, then I would go back to the doctor and discuss it with them. You also should keep a daily journal to help you and the doctor see the affects of the medicine.
5386835 tn?1368544415 error, suffering from frustration, all the symptoms of their conditions and the possible side effects, without results!!! A very bleak picture. Genetic testing, focusing on a limited number of key genes, can help determine the patient's speed of processing anti-depressant or anti-psychotic drugs (from a list of about 20 commonly prescribed drugs). This helps classify the drugs for individual patients, using the Stoplight system in: Green- Most likely effective.
Avatar n tn My mom and I have both had periods of one or two days where we couldn't get a refill and we both suffered extreme withdrawl symptoms, including migranes, dizziness, blurred vision, insomnia, body aches, and not being able to hold down food. And we are just on the minimum dosage.
Avatar m tn nausea, loss of appetite, diarrhea, dry mouth, trouble sleeping, dizziness, drowsiness, weakness, or sweating may occur. Unusual or severe mental/mood changes such as anxiety, weight loss, and vision changes may also be observed. If this headache persists, have this checked by your doctor or be referred to a neurologist for proper evaluation.Take care and regards.
1305597 tn?1275340046 What if you are eatting a 1500 calorie a day and burning the amount of calories to loose weight...do they still make you gain weight? Or is it because while on the medication you just eat more? What if you control your food intake do you still gain weight. I am on cymbalta and I am never hungry but it is giving me other bad side effects so I am afraid the doctor is going to change it and all the other options I have read about all say weight gain.
Avatar n tn I am on 80 mg of Fluoxetine for Depression and Anxiety . I am always tired no matter what and I cant tell if its just in my head or if its really a physical thing. I am always hungry and I eat and eat and never gain weight. (I know for a fact this is true).I am wondering if this could be caused by medication or if not, what could it be? Please help!
Avatar m tn They all tell her she is destined to be obese as her BMI states and there is no obesity in the family, she is to cope and change her mental attitude of trying to drop the weight as some people will just be overweight. If she eats more she will gain, she has gained from not eating more. Acupuncture was suggested by a friend, she is getting so heavy that running and cross fit is getting harder. When will the weight gain stop! She doesn't want to be skinny just wants to get rid of 30lbs.

Avatar n tn Hi, I am on Effexor as well and have gained about 12 pounds since starting as well. My doctor doesn't think it is in direct connection with the effexor but I am struggling with whether or not I should get off it because I can't explain the weight gain. The explanation given makes sense to me, so I guess I need to focus more on my eatting habits.
Avatar n tn they recommended I see a GI doc so I did and he did an endoscopy, came back completely normal. I had nausea as well as loss of appetite with my upper ab pain (both left right, and settled in the middle sometimes), I Finally started getting my appetite back but I am left with, now 2 months later, still the pain.

Avatar n tn I needed to start something new because the Lexapro 10mg I was on for 2 years made me gain so much weight and I had a loss of libido. From what I read the Wellbutrin acts like a time released stimulant. I have anxiety very bad also and it did somewhat heighten my GAD. I'm actually more concerned about the withdrawal effects of Lexapro from getting the brain zaps for the pass 3 days.
Avatar m tn Another study that compared the efficacy and TEAS rates for olanzapine monotherapy, placebo, or a combination of olanzapine plus fluoxetine found a TEAS rate of 6% in the latter group; however, this switch rate did not differ from the placebo group53. Consistent with these findings, analyses of pooled data from databases of pharmaceutical industry research show that mood switches occur in 3.7% of patients treated with SSRIs33.
1910757 tn?1348686919 After 10 days on Fluoxetine, when the initial dose was increased, I experienced some really bad side effects, like extreme agitation and complete lack of appetite. Because of depression I was already underweight, so my psychiatrist decided to switch me to Sertraline instead, to keep me from losing more weight. The first week I still had some nasty adverse effects like insomnia, sweaty hands and feet, lack of appetite and insomnia.
Avatar m tn Within 6 months, I began experiencing a high level of confusion, lack of concentration, lack of memory, lack of coordination and . . . what I can best describe as dizziness? I also experienced a lack of motivation and periods of "zoning out" as well as uncontrolled muscular movements (whole arm, hand, foot or leg). As I began to notice these conditions, I went back to the doc who said these are not common side effects of the medications. Stated it must be some other physical issue.
Avatar n tn After 2 weeks I'm back in her office saying I have painful bloating and gas, drowsiness and shortness of breath. She asked me when the shortness of breath started and I advised her that it started when I started the Effexor XR. She checked her palm pilot for side effects and said there was not data showing shortness of breath as a side effect and ended up sending me home with a prescription for Effexor XR 150mg.
Avatar n tn Perhaps more importantly, the APA is unwilling to mandate education of psychiatrists about the the seriousness of the short and long-term toxicities and withdrawal reactions from the drugs. The drug companies pay speakers ($1000-2000 per appearance) who give psychiatric grand rounds and/or evening speeches (dinner provided by the company) to local psychiatric societies. Speakers come from lists of psychiatrists who will basically endorse their products.
Avatar n tn I started taking the Sertraline (Zoloft) and it was making me feel sickly, I have already lost a lot of weight through loss of appetite so I didn't need that. How long does it take for that sickly feeling to stop? I have been prescribed the following in the past which didn't work: Fluoxetine (Prozac), Citalopram (Celexa). Should i stick with the Zoloft or should i try the Mirtazapine?
Avatar f tn i am not on zoloft but i am on fluoxetine wich is the same as prozack, and i have had a terrible time with side effects, upset stomach , loss of appetite, weak very weak legs and muscle cramps, headachs im just waiting for them to go away and get on with it , i hope that you have good luck let me know how you do ! this is the first time i have dealt with anxiety also so its all new to me but this forum has helped put my mind at ease a lil , just knowing im not alone!!!
219241 tn?1413541365 I have just started Fluoxetine a few days ago, which I have already had some nightmares and loss of appetite from. I know they say it takes at least two weeks to kick in but I was taking St John's wort prior to this (my doc knew of this) My serotonin levels were extremely low. I was weepy but not depressed, well, maybe a bit around period time! Anyways, I have since found out the generic is Fluoxetine but the trade name is Prozac. I didn't realise it was that and would never have taken it!
Avatar f tn Anti depressants and anti-anxiety medications can blunt the terrible pain of loss and will definitely treat clinical depression. But these pills do not change the reality of what your mother is facing. Pastoral care, counseling, family conversations, and being present are ways to give comfort and to give meaning to both the person who is ill and to their family.
