Fluoxetine prozac weight loss

Common Questions and Answers about Fluoxetine prozac weight loss


Avatar f tn There ARE ADs out there that will not cause weight gain..........some are even known to cause weight loss. If ANY part of your depression centered around your weight, your doctor should not have put you on one that is notorious for weight gain. I looked up the side effects for Celexa and found listed under GI: Anorexia and decreased appetite. But please understand that we all react differently to medications. I've known people to LOSE weight on Prozac...........
Avatar m tn Other possible common side effects of Prozac are headache, nervousness, insomnia/anxiety, nausea/diarrhea, weight loss . Rare side effects of Prozac are drowsiness and rashes. According to the medical book I am consulting, you should discuss with your physician in all cases, insomnia/anxiety , nausea/diarrhea, and weight loss. I hope the information I've provided you can be helpful in some way. I wish you well.

Avatar m tn These drugs tend to cause less sedation and have different side effects to older antidepressants. Fluoxetine or Prozac elevates mood, increases physical activity and restores interest in everyday pursuits. Prozac is used to treat depression , to reduce binge eating and purging activity ( bulimia nervosa) and to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder. Fluoxetine is broken down slowly and remains in the body for several weeks after treatment is stopped.

Avatar f tn I've just started up fluoxetine (prozac) for the second time and am having trouble functioning. Does anyone know when they started to feel ANY relief from anxiety? also, I really need to gain some weight back so does fluoxetine give anyone an INCREASED appetite? Thank you for your help! Also, I'm taking it at night... do any of you think that is a bad idea?
1305597 tn?1275340046 citalopram (celexa), fluoxetine (prozac), sertraline (zoloft). Another medication that is sometimes added to SSRI in the treatment of depression is bupropion (welbutrin) and it has even been shown to cause a small weight loss over the first few months (it suppresses the appetite). However, if the eating disorder you are is either anorexia or bulimia this is not an option because during clinical trails bupropion caused a slightly increased rate of new seizures in those two eating disorders.
Avatar f tn I am sure there are other people on here who may have taken anti-depressants and had weight loss. I know if you ask doctor, they are no help. I suppose they are not interested if we gain weight.
Avatar n tn 2005, at 25mg for three days then increased to 50mg thereafter, and underwent rapid and severe weight gain as a result. The Zoloft worked and everything was fine except for the weight gain. I tried other medications from Jan.-Mar. 2006, of this year, including Celexa, Luvox, Wellbutrin, and Prozac, and none of them worked and just made me worse off than I already was.
Avatar n tn A medication that also works with the brain chemical dopamine is bupropion. Bupropion is unlikely to cause weight gain, and in fact, may cause some weight loss. It is also used to help people quit smoking.

Avatar f tn Anyone one been on fluoxetine and not had any problems with weight gain before I went on them July 2012 I was a nice 9 half stone I'm now up to 13 stone and feeling awful? Would be good to know if sum ones had the same problem and had change of meds and what to.
Avatar n tn Fluoxetine has not that problem cos its half-life is 4-16 days though abrupt withdrawal of any kind of these drugs is not convenient.Using fluoxetine can make weight loss but it is very relative.It is important to know the side-effect of the drugs but you must think they are not to come to you.To defeat depression we must take into account that we are persons with a mood disorder,we are not 'depressed people' so we must fight hardly to improve our self-value and our life's quality.
Avatar f tn A study published in the journal Endocrinology (2004) reveals that giving Prozac to children may result in a loss of bone mass. The study was conducted on mice and showed an average 9.4% less bone formation in the thighbones of the mice taking Prozac, compared to mice who were not given the drug.
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?
415867 tn?1323369103 In fact, Meridia, a weight-loss drug, is an SNRI. Another SNRI, Effexor, has no weight-loss properties, but it is an antidepressant. This shows that tiny changes in chemical structure can have big effects on the brain. I take Wellbutrin which is a SNRI, I have no loss of sex drive what so ever, and while I have put on weight I don't think it is related to the drug. I think it is related to my eating habits in that I eat crap all the time and need to knock that out of my diet. Take care.
Avatar n tn How long have you been on the Prozac? It varies from person to person. You are not gaining weight which is a good thing but if you eat all the time, you are going to have little energy. It takes a lot of energy for your body to break down that food. It happens to me as well. Talk to your dr, but I would recommend exercise and try to start working on a diet plan. Eat 5 to 6 times a day but try to eat small portions, or smaller at first, and eat as many whole grain and fruit as you can.
1107839 tn?1328439291 The sexual dysfunctions started On the first day of using medications and those are loss of libido and sex drive and erectile dysfunction and weight gain and aging type of characters.Although there are no anxiety and depression now.

Avatar f tn hey christie ty for your response. i wanted to clarify a little im not taking prozac just to get along with dh and kids there have been a lot of things that have happened in the past 2 weeks and i have been diaganosed with severe depression, anxiety and marital stress. my doc knows that im preggo and i will be asking my ob and doc about stopping meds at 25-30 weeks because of possible complications.
Avatar n tn Most antidepressents that I know of the higher the dosage the more weight you gain, but lower dosages can actually help you lose weight. It's weird, but true. Like prozac in lower dosages helped this coworker of mine lose weight. I'm sorry you're so depressed! I've been through depression, too... if you want to talk about it, I'd love to!
Avatar n tn Both, however, are known to cause restlessness, nervousness, agitation, insomnia, and weight loss. I can not easily attribute you fogetfulness to bupropion. Both bupropion and fluoxetine are safe and effective antidepressants. Bupropion causes less impotence than fluoxetine does. Lack of concentration, disorganized and unfocussed thinking, amnesia, and numerous other cognitive difficulties can be experienced by depressed individuals due to the depression itself.
Avatar f tn Zoloft was origially marketed as a weight loss drug. I lost weight on both because they made me nervous and upset my STOMACH. SSRI's are like statins in that everyone cannot take them...........Unless you are suicidal, I'd have my DR. titrate me off all SSRIs, then go have my thyroid checked. just a thought.
Avatar f tn After a week and two days of stopping fluoxetine after 5 weeks and starting straight on mirtazapine my mood is really low and snapping at everything and feel rubbish, I can burst out and cry at absolutely anything and come dinner time everyday I have this heavy feeling behind my nose it that means anything to anyone, I've got the shakes have hot sweats and feel sleepy(zombie) all day until tea time where I feel a little human again and then a few hours later I know I'm ready to take the mirtazap
Avatar f tn He told me not to worry about it and asked me to start with the fluoxetine (prozac - 20 mg / day) medication. 20th April - i.e, after 10 days of taking the medication, I got a soar throat, sweating feet, mild ear ache, headache and high fever (101 F) for about one day. I rushed to the urgent care and doctor said he could see some infection in the ear (probably some thing that I could have caught from my daughter) and put me on Amoxicilin & Tylenol.
Avatar n tn You're very welcome. When my withdrawals started the symptoms terrified me. Other people on support boards gave me information that explained what was happening and they have followed through with support and kind reassurance and still do so when I get fed up with it all. Its the least I can do to pass that help on - suppose it could be seen as some sort of repayment plan LOL?
Avatar n tn At the chemist I was shocked when the assistant told me that its for depression and when I checked the main constituent on the net it is Fluoxetine 20mg.Isnt that Prozac by any other name?Am taking no other medication only something liquid to sooth my stomach before eating and Librax tablets to soothe my colon twice a day. So I need to know what if possible is going? or is that I am getting some kind of warning about what the future holds for me healthwise?
