Paxil was awfull for me to get off of, it took me 5 months to wean off of it. And
you do not gain weight from Lexapro
. My best friends wife is a psycologist, and
she told me that lexapro is a "neutral" , while some others do have a weight gain effect. The only thing i can say about people gaining weight is they feel better on the medication (relief of anxiety), therfore they tend to eat more. You just need to watch your eating habits, if you are at all concerned about weight.
