Common Questions and Answers about Fluoxetine and obesity


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 have been on Effexor XR for 3 years and I have gained about 40-50pounds, most when my dose was increased to 225, now I am on 75mg b/c I'm getting ready to wean off the medicine in a couple of weeks,and I haven't lost anything yet. My eating habits have not changed and I exercise. I have always been underweight and I could eat whatever I wanted...I'm only 26 years old...I know my metabolism has changed some, but not enough to pack on 40 pounds.
Avatar n tn It worries me because I know certain smells can indicate certain illnesses. It's also embarrassing and I have to shower every time I sweat, and I've always felt like I sweat more than others, so it becomes tiring showering all day long just so I can go out of my house and feel clean for about an hour. Please help.
Avatar n tn I am 21 years old and have never been the type to take perscription drugs or otc drugs for that matter, so I'm not big on side effects and all that. I have been taking paxil for 4 days now and on day two I realized that I was yawning so much that my jaw was starting to hurt (yawn) I cant stop. Im really really tired and the yawning is getting quite annoying. Is this normal and when does It usually stop? Im also obese weighing in at 257.4 lbs with only a 5'2" height.
Avatar n tn We live in Britain and the MHRA medicines and health regulatory agency told me Clozapine can cause cardiomyopathy, myocarditis and obesity. My son also is obese since going on this medication. He was rushed to hosp 9 yrs ago unable to walk or talk eyes rolling upwards and salivating heavily. No dr admit to anything, his social worker disappeared. 3 solicitors would not take on the case. it is all wrong. system corrupt.
1603923 tn?1297771567 Factors that make someone high-risk include age, lung disease, morbid obesity. Also, stents are not as good as bypass surgery in the diabetic population when you have this much coronary artery disease (meaning 3-vessels involved). I think his age is not much of a problem for bypass surgery currently. If your father has had a heart attack in this setting or is still continuing to have chest pain, then I would be very nervous about taking him out of the hospital and flying him to Pakistan.
Avatar m tn Both are in the class of drugs called selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), a class that also includes fluoxetine (Prozac), paroxetine (Paxil) and sertraline (Zoloft). SSRIs work by affecting neurotransmitters in the brain, the chemical messengers that nerves use to communicate with one another. Neurotransmitters are made and released by nerves and then travel to other nearby nerves where they attach to receptors on the nerves.
Avatar m tn Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs), which include such medications as fluoxetine(Prozac) and sertraline(Zoloft), can be used to treat the obsessive-compulsive behaviors associated with Tourette's disorder. They can also be helpful with depression and impulse control difficulties, though they must be given at higher dosages for OCD than for depression. The SSRIs, however, can cause gastric upset and nausea.

Avatar f tn No, when all of this started I was infact on an antidepressant (I believe it was fluoxetine). As far as Wellbutrin and Cymbalta are concerned - wellbutrin obviously made it worse, but cymbalta made the mental part of anxiety go away (the mental part of anxiety only resurfaced couple of months after I had stopped taking it).
Avatar n tn Tight clothing, nylon underwear, and skin folds resulting from obesity may trap moisture in the area. Diet Certain foods can produce enzymes that are irritating to the skin when stool is passed. The more common ones are products containing caffeine (coffee, tea, colas, and chocolate), spicy foods, dairy products, beer, citrus fruits, tomatoes, and nuts. Skin Irritants Dyed or scented toilet paper, soaps, and laundry detergent may cause the irritation.
Avatar n tn I am in a very similar situation. My son is currently 11 years old and has been spoiling himself for the last 3 years. It started off to where it was every once in a great while and has increased severely over the last three years. However my son has gone through a very traumatic incident involving his biological father.
20003388 tn?1515169640 Your 2 diagnoses are distinct and treated separately, yet treatment must be in concert, as well. Being obese is a factor in both anxiety and apnea. Also obesity causes Vitamin D "functional" deficiency, -even if your vitamin D levels test normal- in the form of vitamin D resistance (VDR). Much higher levels of D are necessary to make up for VDR. Chronic pain is another source of stress.
